'Reveal' device interrogation

'Reveal' device interrogation

 

These small, implantable ECG recorders are used for patients experiencing problematic symptoms but which occur so intermittently that conventional Holter monitoring for 24, 48 or even 72 hours, does not capture the events.

 

The 'reveal' continuously monitors the heart rhythm and automatically stores events which it considers unusual. It can also be activated by the patient during an attack of symptoms by holding an activation device over the area where the reveal is implanted and clicking a button. The reveal can be quickly read or downloaded at the outpatient clinic by the cardiac physiologist.

 

Any unusual cardiac rhythms which the reveal may have recorded are then correlated to the patients' account of any symptoms and then given to the Cardiologist. The appointment will take about 15 - 20 minutes.
