FDA has cleared Biotronik’s Vital Data Sensor to identify body temperature increases potentially associated with fever as part of its new Biomonitor IIIm injectable cardiac monitor (ICM).
The device has shown to achieve a 72 percent reduction in false positives while maintaining 100 percent of AF-related sensitivity. It removes single ectopic beats out of the AF detection algorithm, enhancing diagnostic accuracy.
According to Biotronik, “BIOMONITOR IIIm is the industry leader in battery longevity with 5.5 years of continuous service, providing long-term post-ablation or cryptogenic stroke monitoring. It is also backed by the Patient App, which allows patients to include vital symptom data, providing physicians with symptom-rhythm correlation which strengthens diagnostic precision.”
