Medical Director of the Mercy Hospital Arrhythmia Syncope Center, Dr. Alberto Interian Jr., is the first doctor in Miami-Dade to implant the Medtronic’s Reveal XT Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) device. The device is a novel cardiac monitoring device for patients with irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), or recurrent, unexplained fainting (syncope). The ICM device monitors patients 24 hours a day, every day for up to three years, recording important cardiac rhythm trend data that may allow a physician to confirm or rule out an abnormal heart rhythm more definitively than other tests. Reveal XT monitor is chosen by Physicians for their patients with suspected arrhythmias in difficult-to-diagnose patients for whom long-term cardiac rhythm trending data may aid in a more informed diagnosis. Even the device is chosen by physicians for syncope patients with known or suspected atrial fibrillation (AF) where the heart quivers and cannot effectively pump blood to the body’s organs. Physicians may also use the Reveal XT ICM to detect the presence of atrial arrhythmias (AT), including asymptomatic episodes, or to monitor the amount of time a patient is in AT/AF to assess whether medical treatment is necessary or should be adjusted.
