What is a Reveal LINQ Implant Device?
A LINQ device is a cardiac device, as small as a USB stick, which is implanted under the skin and remains there over a long period of time. This type of device is commonly used for patient’s who experience fainting or sporadic palpitation symptoms.
What happens when getting a Reveal LINQ Implant Device fitted?
Implanting the device involves a small surgical procedure under local anaesthetic on the left side of your chest. The entrance wound does not need any form of closure. The device remains in the same position for up to four years.
If you experience fainting or sporadic palpitation symptoms, the device will record this. These results will then form a picture over a period of time which can be analysed. Your consultant cardiologist can then make a diagnosis before creating a treatment plan.
