Personal Stories

Dawn's Story

When Dawn and her family took a vacation 4 hours from home in June 2003, the Medtronic CareLink® Monitor went along. "Before I had the monitor, I would have been quite concerned about travelling that far from home and my clinic," says Dawn.

John's Story

John had already participated in 3 different heart-related drug studies when he heard about an implantable defibrillator study from his cardiologist. John says his implantable defibrillator gives him a great sense of security.

Ian's Story

As a football player and track athlete in high school, Ian says that he was able to do all of his workouts in sports, but walking up a flight of steps the next day in class was another story. "[The defibrillator] is there to protect you," Ian says.
