Limitations: Patients may use their own Apple or Android mobile device to transmit information from their Confirm Rx™ ICM using the myMerlin™ mobile app. To do so, the device must be powered on, app must be installed, Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled and data coverage (cellular or Wi-Fi) available. The myMerlin™ app provides periodic patient monitoring based on clinician-configured settings. Transmission data is resent if not sent successfully. However, there are many internal and external factors that can hinder, delay or prevent acquisition and delivery of ICM and patient information as intended by the clinician. These factors include: patient environment, data services, mobile device operating system and settings, ICM memory capacity, clinic environment, schedule/configuration changes or data processing.
