Medtronic Reveal Linq implantable cardiac monitor. The implanted heart monitor helped identify many high-risk patients with AFib who previously were undiagnosed.

The Medtronic Reveal Linq implantable cardiac monitor is the smallest implantable monitor on the market. It is used as a long-term Holter monitor for 24-hour a day, 365-day a year patient monitoring. The device uses wireless connectivity to download the patient data with a patient bedside base unit to send the information over the internet so it is accessible by physicians.
