  • Small size (~1.4 cc) with slim profile
  • Simple insertion procedure requiring minimal time and resources
  • Programmable data storage options to ensure capture of significant events and reduce the risk that unexpected events are missed
  • MR Conditional (MRI Ready) ease: The Confirm Rx™ ICM is conditionally safe for use in the MRI environment when used in accordance to the instructions in the MRI Ready Monitor Systems user manual

 

ENHANCE PATIENT COMPLIANCE TO REMOTE MONITORING

By removing the need for a bedside transmitter and patient activator, Confirm Rx™ ICM simplifies cardiac monitoring for your patients.

  • 97% of registered myMerlin™ for Confirm Rx™ mobile app users transmitted at least once.2
  • 1.6 days is the average time between transmissions.2
Smarter connectivity from Confirm Rx ICM to Patient Smartphone to Clinician Portal

 

The myMerlin™ mobile app for Confirm Rx™ ICM also:

  • Automatically connects with the device via Bluetooth® low energy wireless technology, and informs patients of successful device checks and clinic-scheduled transmissions, without interrupting their daily lives
  • Alerts patients to connection problems via simple app-based notifications, helping them stay compliant to remote monitoring

EMPOWER AND ENGAGE PATIENTS

The downloadable myMerlin™ mobile app for Confirm Rx™ ICM serves as an integrated transmitter and symptom recorder, as well as a repository of resources for the patient. Help your patients discover greater freedom, increased mobility and better engagement in their own care.

Direct Bluetooth® wireless technology connection to the device and the intuitive design of the myMerlin™ mobile app helps patients stay connected, making it easier for them to transmit data according to the clinic-prescribed schedule.

The myMerlin™ mobile app for Confirm Rx™ ICM:

  • Offers patients app-based recording of symptomatic events and automatic upload of clinic-scheduled transmissions-all via their own smartphones-with minimal disruptions to their daily lives
  • Allows patients to annotate symptomatic events with specific keywords, such as "fainted" or "fluttering," providing greater clinician insights for confident diagnosis

An Abbott mobile transmitter is available for patients without their own compatible mobile device.

 
SECURE AND PROTECTED REMOTE MONITORING
  • The Confirm Rx™ ICM with SharpSense™ technology uses a proprietary pairing protocol as an added control measure in addition to the pairing procedure specified in Bluetooth® low energy protocols. Pairing requests are authenticated using cloud-based public key cryptography authentication.
  • The Confirm Rx™ ICM with SharpSense™ technology creates a unique 128-bit key for the paired mobile app and verifies it at the onset of every communication. If the unique key is not verified, the device denies access.
  • The Confirm Rx™ ICM with SharpSense™ technology uses an authorization protocol, which limits a paired mobile app's access based on clinician settings. Encrypted wireless communication uses AES-128 bit encryption and is designed to limit communications to only a single authenticated and paired myMerlin™ mobile app at any given time.
  • The myMerlin™ mobile app encrypts wireless communication to Merlin.net™ PCN through a secure TLS connection using SHA256 cryptographic protection.
  • Merlin.net™ PCN is housed in a secured data center and is ISO 27001:2013 certified. Access to patient data in Merlin.net™ PCN is restricted to authorized users as set by the clinic administrator. Confirm Rx™ ICM with SharpSense™ technology data is encrypted using AES-128 bit encryption.
  • Merlin.net™ PCN is successfully certified through the EU-US Privacy Shield program to transfer patient information from the EU to the US.

INDICATIONS, SAFETY & WARNINGS
INDICATIONS, SAFETY & WARNINGS

Confirm Rx™

Model DM3500
Insertable Cardiac Monitor

Indications: The Confirm Rx™ ICM is indicated for the monitoring and diagnostic evaluation of patients who experience unexplained symptoms such as: dizziness, palpitations, chest pain, syncope, and shortness of breath, as well as patients who are at risk for cardiac arrhythmias. It is also indicated for patients who have been previously diagnosed with atrial fibrillation or who are susceptible to developing atrial fibrillation. The Confirm Rx™ ICM has not been specifically tested for pediatric use.

Contraindications: There are no known contraindications for the insertion of the Confirm Rx™ ICM. However, the patient’s particular medical condition may dictate whether or not a subcutaneous, chronically inserted device can be tolerated.

Adverse Events: Possible adverse events (in alphabetical order) associated with the device, include the following: Allergic reaction, Bleeding, Chronic nerve damage, Erosion, Excessive fibrotic tissue growth, Extrusion, Formation of hematomas or cysts, Infection, Keloid formation and Migration. Refer to the User’s Manual for detailed indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and potential adverse events.

Additional information: Clinicians must log onto Merlin.net™ Patient Care Network to view transmissions from patients’ Confirm Rx™ ICM. On Merlin.net™ PCN they can configure transmission schedules and enable or disable features on a patient’s myMerlin™ mobile app. Review of transmissions is dependent on the clinician and may not happen immediately following delivery of such transmissions.

Limitations: Patients may use their own Apple‡ or Android‡ mobile device to transmit information from their Confirm Rx™ ICM using the myMerlin™ mobile app. To do so the device must be powered on, app must be installed, Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled and data coverage (cellular or WiFi‡) available. The myMerlin™ mobile app provides periodic patient monitoring based on clinician configured settings. Data is resent if the transmission was not sent successfully. However, there are many internal and external factors that can hinder, delay, or prevent acquisition and delivery of ICM and patient information as intended by the clinician. These factors include: patient environment, data services, mobile device operating system and settings, ICM memory capacity, clinic environment, schedule/configuration changes, or data processing.

An Abbott mobile transmitter is available for patients without their own compatible mobile device.
