This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Medtronic's 69 cc MicroJewel defibrillator has been cleared for release by the US FDA. The latest member of the company's successful Jewel ICD family has an Active Can - the metal skin of the device acts as an electrode - and delivers shocks up to 34 joules. It can store up to 15 minutes of high-fidelity ECG or 10 minutes accompanied by interval plotting, marker channel notations, and expanded flashback memory, a graphical display system for historical data. Medtronic estimates the MicroJewel will have a maximum working life of eight years.
