CONFIRM Rx™ ICM LET’S GET ANSWERS
Unexplained fainting or an irregular heartbeat can feel scary. Confirm Rx™ ICM can help you find out what’s going on.
What's going on?
Dizziness, shortness of breath, or unexplained fainting are all symptoms of an irregular heartbeat, also called an arrhythmia. There are four common kinds of arrhythmia: Atrial Fibrillation, Bradycardia, Tachycardia and Pause. Confirm Rx™ ICM can help diagnose these conditions.
A very irregular and fast heart rate between 350 and 600 beats per minute (BPM) is called Atrial Fibrillation, or AF.
A slow heartbeat—fewer than 60 beats per minute (bpm)—is called Bradycardia.
A fast heartbeat—more than 100 beats per minute (bpm)—is called Tachycardia.
A gap in your regular heartbeat, when your heart doesn’t beat for a few seconds, is called Pause.
Do you have af?
If your heart beats irregularly, you may have an arrhythmia called Atrial Fibrillation (AF). People with AF often have a hard time with light exercise and frequently feel winded or tired. This very fast, highly irregular beating can also make you more likely to have a stroke.
Is it Syncope?
Fainting also is called Syncope, which can be heart related. Symptoms include feeling dizzy, changes in vision, feeling sick (nausea) or having a hard time standing.
How does Confirm Rx™ ICM work?
Confirm Rx™ ICM is a type of insertable heart monitor. In a simple procedure, the device is placed below the skin and over the heart.
For up to two years after placement, Confirm Rx™ ICM continuously monitors your heart rhythm, allowing your doctor to more easily and accurately diagnose an irregular heartbeat.
After your heart monitor is placed, you can use the myMerlin™ for Confirm Rx™ ICM mobile app to record symptoms as they occur and automatically send your heart rhythm data to your clinic—all from your smartphone.
If you haven’t already, take the first step and talk to your doctor about whether Confirm Rx™ ICM is right for you. Diagnosing an arrhythmia may take time, but we’re here to help you get back into the rhythm of life.
