The power of choice: With Abbott’s Jot Dx™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM), seeing 3 key episodes* or all episodes is in your control.

Reduce your data burden, increase control. With Jot Dx ICM, Key Episode selection provides flexibility to control the amount of EGM data flow transmitted to your clinic. Health care providers get the flexibility of seeing what matters most based on patient or facility needs.

Key Episode selection decreases data burden on average by 63% without compromising time-to-diagnosis.1 Providers can choose to see three key episodes or all episodes from their patients — the choice is in their control.

Along with the power of choice, Jot Dx ICM goes further and gives you the precise, actionable EGM insights you need to accurately diagnose difficult-to-detect arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation.


Key Episodes are uniquely programmed to evaluate each arrhythmia differently: AFib, Tachy, Brady and Pause each have a novel set of evaluation criteria that make up the three key episodes. The episode selection ensures you receive the most insightful, clinically actionable data based on arrhythmia type. Plus, better selection criteria sets Jot Dx ICM apart from others that use a standard set of criteria for EGM transmission. View selection criteria comparisons on the website here.

The study “Reducing Clinical Review Burden of Insertable Cardiac Monitors in Patients with Frequent Arrhythmia Detections” concluded that in high EGM-volume patients, Key Episode selection significantly reduced the review burden of total EGMs and EGMs/patient/month with no significant delay in arrhythmia diagnosis.2

These statistics demonstrate potential time-saving benefits:
