Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), an important diagnostic test, has traditionally been off limits to more than 2 million people in the United States who have an implanted pacemaker to regulate heart rhythms or an implanted defibrillator to prevent sudden cardiac death.
Painful jolts are so yesterday! Each year in the United States, more than 200,000 people have a cardiac defibrillator implanted in their chest to deliver a high-voltage shock to prevent sudden cardiac death from a life-threatening arrhythmia.
Defibrillator has no leads to the heart; may remedy issues associated with other devices CHICAGO, Aug.
ROCKVILLE, Md., Jan.
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators do not appear to be associated with a reduced risk of death in women with advanced heart failure.
Biotronik, a cardiovascular medical device company, has announced new positive data which showed that remote monitoring of its implantable cardioverter defibrillators is a safe and effective alternative to conventional in-office follow-up care, which helps reduce the burden on capacity-constrained cardiac centers.
BIOTRONIK, the pioneer in wireless remote monitoring technology for patients with cardiac devices, announced today that data presented at the New Trials in Electrophysiology and Pacing Session of the American Heart Association (AHA) 2008 Scientific Sessions shows remote monitoring of its implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) is a safe and effective alternative to conventional in-office follow-up care, which helps reduce the burden on capacity-constrained cardiac centers.
