Hunterdon Medical Center Announces First Use of Miniature Cardiac Monitor
Small, Wireless Monitor Provides Long-Term Remote Monitoring to Help Physicians Diagnose and Monitor Irregular Heartbeats Hunterdon Medical Center announced that it is one of the first hospitals in New Jersey to implant the Medtronic Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) System in a patient, the smallest implantable cardiac monitoring device available.
     The Reveal LINQ ICM is approximately one-third the size of a AAA battery, making it more than 80 percent smaller than other ICMs. While significantly smaller, the device is part of a powerful system that allows physicians to continuously and wirelessly monitor a patient’s heart for up to three years, with 20 percent more data memory than its larger predecessor, Reveal XT.
     "This is a minimally invasive procedure in which the device is placed just beneath the skin through a small incision in the upper left side of the chest. It is often nearly invisible to the naked eye once inserted, explained Andrew Rudnick, M.D., Cardiac Electrophysiologist at Hunterdon Medical Center. Dr. Rudnick went on to say, “This procedure is indicated for patients who experience symptoms such as dizziness, palpitation, syncope (fainting) and chest pain that may suggest a cardiac arrhythmia, and for patients at increased risk for cardiac arrhythmias."
     Connie Hughes of Ringoes has been looking for a cause to her symptoms which included light headedness and mini blackouts. When neurological problems were ruled out, she sought help from Dr. Rudnick. She had the Reveal LINQ ICM placed about two months ago and continues to be clinically monitored.
     In addition to its continuous and wireless monitoring capabilities, the system provides remote monitoring through the Carelink® Network. Through the Carelink Network, physicians can request notifications to alert them if their patients have had cardiac events.
     The Reveal LINQ system also includes the new MyCareLink Patient Monitor, a simplified remote monitoring system with global cellular technology that transmits patients’ cardiac device diagnostic data to their clinicians from nearly any location in the world.
     For more information on cardiovascular services at Hunterdon Medical Center visit, or call Hunterdon Cardiovascular Associates at 908-788-6471.

Hunterdon Healthcare’s Physical Therapy Offers Treatment Program for Parkinson Disease
     Hunterdon Healthcare’s Physical and Occupational Therapy is now offering Lee Silverman Voice Treatment Big (LSVT Big) therapy to help patient’s with Parkinson Disease and other with neurological disorders.
      Parkinson disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects a person’s movement. "People with Parkinson’s disease move more slowly, they tend to take tiny steps, write smaller and may stand up and freeze in place. The goal of LSVT Big is to retrain a patient’s brain with a repetitive exercise program that helps the patient make their movements larger. A patient may do thousands of exercises to help improve trunk rotation and balance, increase speed, and have a better quality of life," explained Amerigo Abonitalla, PT, DPT, Senior Physical Therapist at Hunterdon Healthcare’s Physical Therapy located at the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center in Whitehouse Station. Abonitalla added, "The Physical Therapist will tailor the program to the individual. If we have a patient that wants to get back to their game of golf, we will work on breaking down the steps to help them get back in the game or the patient may need help with basic life skills such as brushing their teeth so the patient can maintain his or her independence."
     Hunterdon Healthcare has three physical therapists certified in LSVT Big therapy. "Patients are evaluated and if therapy is appropriate, the program includes sixteen sessions over a month, which is four 60 minute sessions a week. There is also homework. Patients have a set of exercises they have to do daily. It is a commitment, but the patient’s that are currently receiving treatment have shown great improvement," stated Tracy Monaco, PT, Physical Therapist at the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center in Whitehouse Station.
     LSVT Big is covered by Medicare and most insurance providers. For more information or to schedule an appointment for an evaluation for LSVT Big therapy, call Physical Therapy at the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center in Whitehouse Station at 908-534-1320 or call Physical and Occupational Therapy in Flemington at 908-788-6394.

NAHS is a nationally recognized organization for students for outstanding art scholarship, character and service, and is sponsored by the National Art Education Association. At the induction ceremony on June 2nd, Elizabeth Cansfield received a $4,000 scholarship from Columbus College of Art & Design for her NAHS membership and participation, and Riley Wagstaff received the "Most Dedicated" scholarship award for $200.
     To qualify for NAHS, students need to maintain an average of 90% or better for at least one semester in the Commercial Art/Advertising or 3D Animation program. The organization meets weekly and the students participate in community service projects throughout the year.

     This year the members’ fundraising effort was for Safe in Hunterdon, an organization that helps survivors of abuse. To raise awareness of this organization, the students sold postcards and recipe cards and the proceeds were donated to the Safe in Hunterdon.
     Currently, the students are working on an alphabet coloring book that will be donated to elementary schools in Hunterdon County.
