- An implantable loop recorder is a heart-monitoring device that continually records your heart rhythm for up to three years.
- It records the electrical signals of your heart and allows you to remotely monitor the signals through a small device inserted just beneath the skin of the chest.
- The most common causes of ILR include looking for causes of fainting, palpitations, very fast or slow heartbeats.
