How is an Arrhythmia Diagnosed?
Because an irregular heartbeat can come and go, diagnosis can be tricky. While other methods of monitoring only record your heartbeat for up to a month, an insertable cardiac monitor—like Confirm Rx™ ICM—can monitor continuously for up to two years.
Insertable Heart Monitor
An ICM goes under the skin near your heart, and can monitor for up to two years.
Small conducting patches (electrodes) stuck to your chest and attached to a small recording monitor record heartbeats for up to two days.
A recorder you can use up to 30 days that attaches to the skin and you can press when you feel symptoms.
The Apple Watch‡ can help identify AF. Talk to your doctor if your wearable detects an unusual heart rhythm.
With the small Confirm Rx™ ICM device and discreet myMerlin™ mobile app, you can record symptoms and send your heart’s rhythm information to your doctor.
Not knowing can be scary, but having an irregular heartbeat doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying your day-to-day activities. Take the first step—talk to your doctor about whether Confirm Rx™ ICM is right for you.
