Remote Monitoring – SJM Confirm® ICM

EquiMed Corporation is now providing 24/7/365 remote monitoring services for the SJM Confirm® ICM (implantable cardiac monitor). The SJM Confirm® ICM is an implantable cardiac monitor that utilizes both auto trigger and patient activated modes to record heart rhythms for patients who experience transient symptoms that may suggest a cardiac arrhythmia. These symptoms may include dizziness, palpitations, syncope or SOB. Implantable cardiac monitors may also be indicated for patients with clinical syndromes or situations at increased risk of cardiac arrhythmias.

Until the advent of the SJM Confirm® ICM and its associated product, the Patient Activator, patients with implantable cardiac monitors did not have a TTM (transtelephonic monitoring) option available for the remote transmission and immediate evaluation by a nurse or technician of their recorded cardiac rhythms. This could lead to significant delays in the identification of potentially significant and critical arrhythmias. With the SJM Confirm® ICM , heart rhythms can be downloaded to the Patient Activator and then transmitted to EquiMed’s remote service center at any time for immediate evaluation.
