Common questions
about myMerlinpulse app

What does the app do?2020-08-26T21:10:09-07:00

Based on how your healthcare provider has set up your app, the app can automatically collect relevant data from your implanted heart device and send it to your clinic. You can also send a transmission from the app, at your clinic’s request.

How should I plan ahead for lack of internet access?2020-08-27T12:19:55-07:00

Inform your clinic of your travel arrangements. Your heart device constantly monitors your heart activity and records cardiac events. If the app detects anything your doctor wants to be aware of, it will send the information to your clinic when you are connected to the internet. Stay connected to the internet (Wi-Fi‡ or cellular data) as often as possible.

When does the app perform daily device checks?2020-08-26T21:09:41-07:00

Device checks typically occur around 2 a.m. every day. Keep your mobile device near you (within 5 feet or 1.5 meters) when you sleep. If you are not close to your mobile device at that time, the app will retry automatically when you are nearby. Device checks occur automatically. If you open the app and happen to see a “Connect Now” button, you may tap the button to manually complete the check.

How close should I keep my mobile device to my implanted heart device?2020-08-26T21:09:24-07:00

Keep your mobile device within 5 feet or 1.5 meters of you. When you go to bed, keep your mobile device on your bedside table next to you.
