Reveal LINQ™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM)

The Reveal LINQ™ ICM system is ideal for patients experiencing infrequent symptoms that require long-term monitoring or ongoing management. The Reveal LINQ™ ICM is simple, yet dramatically smaller and more accurate than any other insertable cardiac monitor.1-8 The video below illustrates the minimally invasive, intuitive insertion procedure which requires minimal procedure time and clinical resources.

System Advantages

  • World’s smallest ICM: one-third the size of an AAA battery (1.2 cc)
  • Up to 3-year longevity for long-term monitoring9
  • MR Conditional at 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla
  • Minimally invasive with simplified insertion procedure

Proven Accuracy

  • Highest published AF detection accuracy at 99.4%10
  • Most clinically validated ICM with 50+ detection performance papers11

Clinical Rigor

  • 500+ published clinical articles and abstracts12
  • Most clinically-validated ICM across cryptogenic stroke, syncope and atrial fibrillation patient populations1, 3, 10
  • Only ICM with evidence published in multiple premier journals including Heart Rhythm, NEJM, JACC1,6, 10

TruRhythm Detection Overview

TruRhythm Detection inside Reveal LINQ ICM

TruRhythm detection inside the Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor is the latest innovation in long-term cardiac monitoring, delivering:
  • A new second sensing filter that analyzes rhythms for possible undersensing in brady and pause
  • A fifth-generation atrial fibrillation algorithm that learns and adapts to the patient’s rhythm over time
  • 54% reduction in false detections*13
  • Streamlined episode review and reporting
