This valuable information, which cannot be collected by standard short-term Holter equipment, provides your physician with all relevant information needed to optimize your treatment. There are several irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) conditions for which an implantable cardiac monitor offers your physician the most accurate cardiac information...

Easy implantation Reliable sensing How does BioMonitor work? The BioMonitor is implanted just under the skin in your upper left chest area. The implantation procedure is performed under a local anesthetic and is similar to a pacemaker implantation. You are awake during the entire procedure, which takes about 30 minutes. The resulting scar is less than 1 ¼ inches (3 cm) long and is located between your collarbone and chest. BioMonitor measures your heart signals in a way that is similar to how a conventional ECG recording is made  –  using a Holter monitor with several electrodes attached to...

To initiate a recording, place the patient magnet over your implanted BioMonitor and hold it there for one to two seconds. BioMonitor will automatically store the ECG recordings from the last seven minutes before the magnet was positioned...

Continuous monitoring – anytime anywhere What is BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® ? How does BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® work? BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® is a system that allows your implanted BIOTRONIK cardiac device to automatically communicate directly with your physician. Your implanted cardiac device contains a built-in antenna that periodically dispatches reports on your heart and the device (1). The CardioMessenger (2) picks up these signals and forwards them to a service center via the GSM cellular network (3). This service center processes the information and posts it on a secure website...

Continuous monitoring – anytime anywhere How do I set up the CardioMessenger? Where should I put the CardioMessenger? You will receive your ready-to-operate CardioMessenger device from your physician. Your physician or nurse will show you how to use the CardioMessenger and verify that it is working properly before you leave the clinic. Most physicians suggest that patients keep the CardioMessenger device near the bed, usually on a nightstand or headboard. For your CardioMessenger to be able to receive signals from your implantable device, your CardioMessenger must be placed no less than 8...
