Life transformed with implantable loop recorder

Listen to Amy Lynch and STARS medical patron Dr Fitzpatrick, Consultant Electrocardiologist, Manchester Heart Hospital on BBC Radio Lancashire.

Amy Lynch, 28, from Blackburn, had her life transformed; after years of unexplained faints, a simple procedure using an implantable loop recorder (ILR) resulted in a positive diagnosis and treatment.

Listen from 2:39 to 2:46

Have you received a positive diagnosis from an ILR? We would love to hear about your experience.

I posted a question on 1st January that did not get a response. I am having a ILP fitted on Wednesday and still very worried as I have not had a chance to talk to anyone about this. x
