Cardiovascular electronic implantable devices (CIEDs) have evolved significantly since the publication of the 2008 Heart Rhythm Society HRS Consensus Statement outlining recommended monitoring strategies. Novel embedded technologies have created the ability for devices to monitor their own function, record arrhythmias and other physiological parameters and to communicate this information to health care providers without active participation of the patient. CIEDs with wireless remote monitoring capabilities stand at the forefront of a new class of medical devices that will unobtrusively acquire vital data outside of the boundaries of health care facilities and seamlessly transmit the information back to health care providers. This document focuses on implantable devices for management of heart rhythm disorders.
The webinar summarizes the key clinical trials highlighting the superiority of remote monitoring and presents the new paradigm for managing CIED patients with continuous remote monitoring and event-triggered in-person evaluations.
