Although many people benefit from the use of an insertable cardiac monitor, results may vary. Your doctor can help you decide if using an insertable cardiac monitor, such as the Reveal® XT from Medtronic is right for you.
While some causes of your heart symptoms are harmless, others may be serious. Heart related causes, including abnormal heart rhythms, are among the most serious. Studies show that an insertable cardiac monitor may diagnose the cause of a person’s symptoms more often than conventional testing1. The main reason is that the events are often unpredictable. The insertable cardiac monitor is always watching and monitoring. This means your doctor can include or exclude an abnormal heart rhythm much more easily.
Although it will not help your symptoms directly, the insertable cardiac monitor allows your doctor to see how changes in your treatment affect your heart’s rhythms. This means that the best treatment for you can be found. Having an insertable cardiac monitor may then result in improved symptoms.
