    Hello everyone.  My name is Mike from Port Washington, NY.  I am a happy and healthy recipient of an Edwards SAPIEN 3 heart valve which I received at New York Presbyterian Medical Center in September 2018.   I would be happy to share my experiences with anyone who is interested.  Soon after receiving the new valve, I had a St Jude Diagnostic Loop Recorder monitor inserted under my skin in my upper chest.  I downloaded an app to my iPhone which can connect to the loop recorder via bluetooth.  The app is called myMerlin and is owned and maintained by Abbott Labs.  The purpose of the loop recorder is to record my heart activity and transmit the info to my heart clinic overnight.  I would like to exchange information with other Mended Hearts who have experience with the SAPIEN 3 and the St Jude loop recorder.  Thank you.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
