Clinical Evidence

Clinical Compendium

Insertable cardiac monitors are becoming a widely used diagnostic tool to detect arrhythmias. The Confirm Rx™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) has been updated with SharpSense™ technology to further improve the performance of the device. This compendium is a collection of product and clinical data to help you make informed decisions for your patients.

Detect AF Study2

First study to evaluate performance of the Confirm Rx ICM predecessor DM2102 ICM to detect atrial fibrillation (AF) published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology in September 2016:

  1. The 90-patient study that compared the DM2102 ICM to a Holter monitor found:
    1. DM2102 ICM can accurately detect AF episodes at least two minutes in length.
    2. DM2102 ICM had a 94% AF episode sensitivity and a 93.7% Postitive Predictive Value (PPV).                                                                        
  2. The positive finding shows value of Abbott technology to detect AF.
