Smallest cardiac monitor implanted

On April 3, Bridgeport Hospital became the first Fairfield County hospital to implant the Medtronic Reveal LINQ insertable cardiac monitor system, the smallest implantable cardiac monitoring device available. The procedure was done by a team led by cardiac electrophysiologist Murali Chiravuri, MD. The patient was a 75-year-old man monitored for an irregular heartbeat.
