St Jude launches USB adaptor for mobile use of cardiac monitoring system

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

St Jude Medical has launched a wireless USB adaptor for its Merlin@home transmitter in the US. The Merlin@home system downloads and transmits data from implantable cardiac devices to physicians via a telephone landline. The new adaptor allows patients to transmit data over mobile phone networks, which is more convenient, especially for patients who travel frequently, according to St Jude (St Paul, Minnesota). The USB device plugs into new and existing Merlin@home transmitters, which are typically placed by a patient's bedside and communicate with the implanted device while they sleep. Merlin@home received a premarket approval (PMA) from the US FDA in July 2008 (www.clinica.co.uk, 18 July 2008).
