Glossary of Terms
Pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillators require long-term follow-up at serial intervals in a device clinic. Device checks are performed non-invasively through a monitor that can communicate with pacemakers and defibrillators, providing detailed information on the function of the device and detection of rhythm issues. Our device clinic provides comprehensive long-term follow-up of devices in our clinic as well as state-of-the-art remote follow-up via the internet for some devices.
