This video, provided by Respicardia, demonstrates the Remede System is a pacemaker-like implantable device. It is designed to improve cardiovascular health by restoring natural breathing during sleep in patients with central sleep apnea. In this video from The Ohio State University, William Abraham, M.D., director of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, explains how the technology works and highlights one patient case involved in a recent study of the device.
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.
