In this Health Supplier Segment, Dr. Avi Fischer, MD, talks about the Abbott’s Confirm Rx™ insertable remote cardiac monitor that helps doctors monitor for irregular heartbeats to help reduce the risk of strokes.
Confirm Rx™ is placed under the skin during a minimally invasive procedure to monitor your heart’s rhythm for signs of atrial fibrillation. This can detect arrhythmias and transmit data via Bluetooth to your smartphone with an app called Merlin.net™ Patient Care Network, allowing your doctor to have real-time access anywhere in the world on how your heart is performing.
Avi Fischer is Divisional Vice President, Medical Affairs and Medical Director for Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) within Abbott Cardiac Arrhythmias and Heart Failure. Prior to this position, as Vice President of Global Education, Avi led a global team responsible for customer and employee education and training across all products and therapies for St. Jude Medical.
