2015 Consensus Statement:Remote Interrogation & Monitoring of Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices

Activity Type:

  • On-Demand

Release Date: 3/11/2016

Expiration Date: 4/30/2017

  • Participation - no CE credit: 1

Description

Wireless remote monitoring has fundamentally changed the paradigm of how we care for patients with cardiovascular implantable electronic devices.  Randomized clinical trials have demonstrated that remote monitoring is superior to a calendar-based schedule of periodic in-person device interrogations.  Yet the rate of adoption of the technology into clinical practice has varied widely.  This 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.

This on-demand activity is:

  • Complimentary for HRS members
  • $29 USD for non-members

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Develop and implement a strategy for remote CIED monitoring and interrogation, including patient education
  • Offer remote monitoring as an option to all CIED patients
  • Recognize when to refer patients to an appropriate center that provides this capability
