The cardiac arrhythmia team’s around-the- clock monitoring program allows it to continually receive messages electronically from implanted loop recorders (ILR) and implanted cardiac monitoring (ICM) technologies.

ILRs and ICMs are placed under the skin during a short, outpatient procedure and are used to identify the quantity and frequency of heartbeat irregularities. These devices can also monitor how efficiently the heart pumps blood.

Patients at Lankenau who receive implanted cardiac monitoring devices benefit from a comprehensive educational program and ongoing support.
