Implantable device monitors stroke risk, with guest Stephanie Loveless, NP, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Loop recorders can detect irregular heartbeats

Implantable loop recorders are sometimes used in medicine for patients who are experiencing palpitations, fainting or unusual heartbeats. The devices can also be useful in detecting heart rhythms that may cause strokes. This interview with Stephanie Loveless focuses on how stroke risk is monitored. She explains who may benefit from this device, how it's implanted and how it works. Loveless is a nurse practitioner at Upstate, working in neurology.
