Medtronic Carelink Questions
I received my Carelink monitor in April of this year and was able to successfully sync it with my ICD. Since then I have been able to transmit successfully to my care provider.Once after the initial syncing and then my 1st quarterly transmission. It would seem all is well.
When I got the monitor, the nurse did not give me much information about the device and attempts to talk with her since have proved futile. Perhaps someone here can provide me some information.
1. Does the monitor interrogate my ICD every night or only prior to transmitting (quarterly)?
2. If the power to the monitor were to fail - do I need to re-sync it to my ICD?
3. Do I need to take the monitor with me when I travel or will my ICD store the information while I am out of town?
Any additional information is most appreciated.
