Arrhythmias can be difficult to detect. Insertable cardiac monitors (ICMs) can spot rhythm problems where other devices can’t. In our Insertable Cardiac Monitoring Essentials, you’ll learn about the indications for an ICM implant, different types of ICMs available, and techniques used to insert and explant these devices. You’ll also cover data download methods, troubleshooting, and how to make the most out of your ICM devices.
