Medtronic received market clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for its insertable cardiac monitor.

Clinicians insert the Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor in the upper left side of a patient's chest during a minimally invasive procedure. The implanted device allows clinicians to continuously monitor a patient's heartbeat for up to three years, according to a company news release.

The device uses wireless communication to upload device data, and patients can undergo MRIs while using the implanted device.
