Not only is the Reveal LINQ the smallest and most powerful insertable cardiac monitoring system, but it has so many other fine features, too, so it is a great device for older individuals. Let’s talk about some of those features.
First, this powerfully small device has 20% more data memory. Second, it has an improved AF-detection algorithm. The battery in this bullet-sized device lasts at least three years and could last up to four years. It also has something called an MR Conditional which is at 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla.
Let me see if I can explain that last feature a bit better. An MR Conditional has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MRI environment. The specific environment and conditions of use has a lot to do with the 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla. Tesla is the SI unit of magnetic flux density; a field condition that must be met in order for this device to work correctly.
Once you realize all this data, you can help convince your client that this heart monitor is a great idea to help determine their heart condition. You can explain all the good qualities that the device has and tell them that it could help their healthcare professional how to best treat their condition. Once you do all of this, you are certainly showing your client that With Age Comes Respect.
