I implanted the first Medtronic Reveal Linq devices outside of a hospital catheter lab in the UK today. These tiny recording devices are literally ‘injected’ under the skin over the left, lower chest in about 30 seconds. My first patient said the blood test he had yesterday hurt more and he went straight back to work! The devices communicate wirelessly with a monitor in the patient’s home and send me information one a secure link 24/7 if a heart rhythm problem is detected……welcome to cardiology in the 21st Century!
So, another 3 Medtronic Linqs implanted and I'm an expert! Apparently did first Linq outside a hospital in London! The start of a revolution
