Assert-IQ ICM

Intelligent, Continuous Heart Monitoring

Get answers, so you can live your life to the fullest.

With an Assert-IQ™ ICM, your doctor can monitor your heartbeat continuously; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without disrupting your lifestyle. Assert-IQ ICM’s intelligent technology can detect even hard to detect irregularities and help your doctor determine the next best step for you.

Why Assert-IQ ICM?

Abbott was the first to introduce a device that used Bluetooth® technology for the rapid transmission of results to your doctor without having to travel to the clinic. Assert-IQ ICM uses the latest Bluetooth®-enabled technology and has been designed for comfort and effectiveness.


Slim design, not noticeable after insertion in most patients.


Advanced diagnostic capabilities provide your doctor with more information, enabling them to make more informed decisions.*


The transmitter checks in with your device every 20 seconds automatically, so you are continuously monitored.

Latest Bluetooth®-Enabled Technology

Automatic, seamless transmission of your information while you go about your normal day.

Longest Battery Life

This Bluetooth®-enabled ICM has a longer battery life option than any other ICM**, which helps to catch harder-to-detect arrhythmias and extends the time required to replace the device, which is less hassle for you.

How does Assert-IQ ICM Work?

After the device is placed, your Assert-IQ ICM will be connected by Bluetooth® to the myMerlin™ Mobile App. The myMerlin Mobile App is specifically designed to automatically send your heartbeat information to your doctor.

Your doctor can see when your heart beats differently and when you report symptoms like:

  • A racing, pounding, or fluttering heart
  • Inconsistent pulse
  • Shortness of breath
  • Trouble with normal activities and exercise
  • Chest pain or pressure
  • Feeling faint or dizzy

Download the myMerlin Mobile App now on the
Apple App Store or Google Play to watch a demo.
