Implantable Loop Recorder

Sometimes the fainting episodes are very less frequent (once in a few months or once a year). In these patients the heart rhythm is required to be monitored for a very long duration. Implantable loop recorder (ILR) is a small device which is implanted just beneath the skin which can monitor the heart rhythm for a duration up to 3 years. It can’t seen from outside and doesn’t cause any discomfort while doing daily activities.
