THE FUTURE IS HERE. MEET the LINQ II™ system

The LINQ II™ insertable cardiac monitoring system is the world’s most accurate ICM,1-4 personalised for the patient’s lifestyle and customised for the clinician’s workflow.
LINQ II™ ICM is ideal for patients experiencing infrequent symptoms that require long-term monitoring or ongoing management.

SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCING BURDEN
ASSOCIATED WITH EPISODE REVIEW.

TRURHYTHM DETECTION

Trurhythm Detection enables the lowest published rate of AF False positives1-4

Disclaimer: A controlled, head-to-head study evaluating the comparative performance of these devices has not been done.
*Based on AF episodes ≥ 2 minutes and in known AF patients.
% of false positives = (1 – episode PPV). AF episodes PPV may vary between gross and patient average.
† Confirm™ Rx with SharpSense™ technology & BIOMONITOR III have no published clinical evidence showing AF episode PPV or AF sensitivity.

When compared to other ICMs, LINQ II™ with TruRhythm™ detection provides up to:1,5

NEW PAUSE DETECTION ALGORITHM

The Pause Detection algorithm reduces burden due to false detection by addressing low amplitude, electrical noise and loss of contact.6

NEW PVC DETECTION ALGORITHM

The algorithm uses both R-R interval and morphology characteristics to  distinguish a PVC beat from a normal beat.

Driving efficiencies at every step of the path to diagnosis.

REMOTE PROGRAMMING

LINQ II™ is the first ICM with remote programming capability*6:

  • Enables programming directly from clinic for all device parameters post-insertion
  • Enables on-going programming optimisation which reduces non-actionable transmissions
  • May reduce patient office visits and scheduling challenges
