ONGOING MONITORING WITH
THE REVEAL LINQ SYSTEM
You’ve had your Reveal LINQ System for a few weeks or more. Now what?
Long-term heart monitoring is designed for use over a period of months or even up to three years. It may seem like nothing is happening, but you can feel confident that your health information is being tracked and made available to your doctor.
Here are some troubleshooting tips and answers to frequently asked questions:
Why haven’t I heard from my doctor?
Long-term heart monitoring is typically used in cases where symptoms are infrequent or a physician wants to monitor the long-term effects of treatment. Therefore, it may take a while for enough information to be available. Every situation is unique but the Reveal LINQ System is designed to monitor your heart for up to 3 years.
How can I be sure my heart information has been sent to my doctor?
If the MyCareLink Monitor screen is dark, press the gray button just once to view the start-up screen. The date shown is the day of your last successful transmission. Occasionally, a day may be missed if, for example, you walked away from bed during a regularly scheduled automatic transmission. Don’t worry, the system will try to send that data again for up to 14 days. If it’s been several days since your last transmission, take another look at your setup guidelines to make sure it’s set up as described.
Why is it important to leave my MyCareLink monitor plugged in at all times?
The MyCareLink Monitor works automatically to send your heart data and to make software updates. Make sure you keep it plugged in so nothing is missed.
What do I do if the MyCareLink Monitor lights up?
You don’t need to do anything. Your monitor is checking for software updates and will cycle through them on its own.
Can I get an MRI?
Yes you can. The Reveal LINQ ICM doesn’t pose any known hazards in specific MRI settings when they’re performed as directed. Provide your device identification card to your imaging technician so he or she can access more information.
