Using myLUX™ app

Understand your myLUX™ Patient App

Your myLUX™ app was designed to work seamlessly on its own, delivering vital cardiac data to your healthcare team. Below, you’ll find tips to ensure your healthcare team receives the information needed about your daily heart rhythms so they can provide the best care possible.

  • Keep your mobile device powered on at all times. You can let the screen go to sleep (or fade to dark), but do not use the power button on the right side to turn off the mobile device unless absolutely necessary

  • Charge your mobile device each night using the charging cord provided

  • Be sure to place your mobile device within 6 feet (2 meters) of where you sleep, so it can connect to your LUX-Dx™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) and send data to your health care team. If you can’t place the mobile device near you, place it within 6 feet of a spot where you spend a considerable amount of time (more than an hour) in the same spot every day

  • You do not need to bring your mobile device with you during the day, unless instructed to by your health care team

Not connected

If you see a screen telling you there is a connection issue, that means your myLUX app can’t connect to your ICM device or to a cellular or Wi-Fi network. This is not a signal that something is wrong with your ICM. You simply need to reconnect your myLUX app. Tap the button displayed with the connection message and follow the instructions until you see a screen confirming your monitoring is up to date.

Recording your symptoms

Your health care team will let you know if you need to record symptoms in your myLUX Patient app and which symptoms you should record. If your app doesn’t have a Record Symptoms button, that means your clinic hasn’t enabled this feature. If you have been asked to record symptoms in your myLUX app, be sure to record immediately for accuracy. 

How to record your symptoms

Sending manual transmissions

For the most part, the LUX-Dx system automatically collects and sends your recorded heart rhythms to your health care team. Occasionally, your care team may also ask you to send a manual transmission, but these should only be sent when you are asked to do so by your health care team.

To send a manual transmission:

  1. Tap the Menu icon (º) in the upper left corner of your app screen.

  2. Select Manual Transmission. Follow the instructions on the screen.

  3. Note: Connecting to your ICM device may take several minutes. A message will confirm when this is complete.

  4. Tap Done.

Device Quality and Reliability 

It is Boston Scientific’s intent to provide implantable devices of high quality and reliability. However, these devices may exhibit malfunctions that may result in lost or compromised ability to deliver therapy. Refer to Boston Scientific’s CRM product performance report on www.bostonscientific.com for more information about device performance, including the types and rates of malfunctions that these devices have experienced historically. While historical data may not be predictive of future device performance, such data can provide important context for understanding the overall reliability of these types of products. Also, it is important that you talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits associated with the implantation of a device.  

myLUX ™ Patient App and Insertable Cardiac Monitor System 
Important Information 

 The ICM system consists of the following: Insertable Cardiac Monitor (“ICM device”); Magnet; and myLUX patient app (“app”). The myLUX ™ Patient App is for use with a BSC Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) system which is a small device designed to monitor and record your heart rhythm once it has been placed under your skin. This information is shared via an automatic transmission to the clinic and your doctor for medical evaluation. The ICM and app are not intended to assist with medical emergencies; this means that it doesn’t provide any treatment to the potential rhythms that could be recorded. Your myLUX™ Patient App is designed to work only with the ICM that your doctor has prescribed and implanted in you. 

The ICM system does not treat cardiac arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats that are too fast, too slow, or irregular), but rather it collects information for your health care provider to use to support their medical  evaluation of your symptoms or condition. The ICM device’s monitoring of your heart will not cause any  noticeable sensations. Your ICM system is set up to automatically collect data stored on your ICM device  and send it to your clinic to review according to the schedule your healthcare provider has set up. Your  health care provider may also ask you to manually transmit data, however additional instruction will be  provided if you need to do this as it should only be done on a limited basis. 

Electromagnetic fields are created by devices which use electricity, including those which are plugged  into a wall outlet or battery operated. Devices which emit strong electromagnetic fields may have the  potential to temporarily interfere with your ICM device’s ability to detect and monitor your heart rhythm.  They could also delay or prolong communication between your ICM device and your myLUX ™ Patient  app. 

 The magnet when provided with the ICM system may cause interference with devices sensitive to magnetic fields such as hearing aids, pacemakers, and other implanted devices. It can also permanently  disable some magnetic strip cards. 

Ask your health care provider if you have questions about any risks with using the myLUX ™ App, the  magnet or your ICM device. 

Please refer to the Patient Handbook for the full warnings, precautions and important safety information.
