Alice's Story

Over a period of several years, Alice experienced several fainting episodes, one of which ended with her being transported to a local emergency room. Alice's doctor recommended a Medtronic Reveal Insertable Cardiac Monitor, which could help him to diagnose her condition.

Leslie's Story

Leslie grew up believing fainting was a sign of weakness. "So after I fainted, I would get right back up and keep on going." One day, Leslie fainted while shopping. This time, Leslie decided to get her fainting spells checked out.

Robert's Story

Robert experienced fainting spells at the grocery store, at work, and at choir practice. Robert's doctor decided to give him a Medtronic Reveal Insertable Cardiac Monitor to continuously record his heart rhythm, linking his heart's activity to his fainting spells.
