For patients with implanted rhythm-management devices
Patients are enrolled in this clinic after placement of a pacemaker, defibrillator, or implantable loop recorder. Patients are evaluated in office as well as monitored remotely per recommended guidelines of patient’s device. A highly trained registered nurse evaluates the pacemakers and defibrillators at routine intervals and makes adjustments as needed. The nurse also performs post implant wound evaluations and education..
A pacemaker is a small, battery-powered device that prevents the heart from beating too slowly. It is also known as a cardiac pacing device. There are three different types: single chamber, dual chamber, and biventtriculator.
An implantable Cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is a small battery powered device placed in the chest to detect and stop irregular heart beats (arrhythmias). An ICD continually monitors the heart beat and delivers electirc shocsk, when needed, to restore regular heart rhythm.
Implantable Loop Recorder (ILR)
Is a small device that is implanted under the skin of chest that records the heart's electrical activity for up to 3 years. This is recommended for patients who have an unexplained stroke, unexplained fainting, or irregular heart beat (arrhythmia).
