Implantable Loop Recorder
An implantable loop recorder is a type of heart-monitoring device that records your heart rhythm continuously for up to three years. It allows your doctor to remotely monitor your heartbeat while you go about your daily activities.
An implantable loop recorder is placed under the skin on the chest.
You'll be awake for the procedure but may be given medicine to relax you (sedative). The area of skin on the chest is numbed. Your doctor makes a tiny incision, inserts the device and closes the incision. The device will stay in place for up to three years.
