The Jewel Purpose and Overview

The Jewel continuously monitors a patient’s heart activity, detects ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, and automatically delivers an electrical shock to restore normal heart rhythms.

You have prescribed the Jewel to your patient for a temporary period so that they are protected from specific life-threatening heart rhythms 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Jewel is not an implanted device. It is a device that is externally worn on the patient’s skin.
