Remote monitoring including transmission of electrocardiogram (ECG) strips has been implemented in implantable cardiac monitors (ICM). We appraise whether the physician can rely on remote monitoring to be informed of all possibly significant arrhythmias.

Implantable loop recorder (ILR) is preferred strategy for prolonged rhythm monitoring.
Based on the findings of a prior study of CIED (Cardiac Implantable Electrical Device) remote monitoring (RM) frequency at the same center, the University of Michigan Congenital Heart Center (UMCHC) i...
Remote monitoring is an established, guideline-recommended technology with unequivocal clinical benefits; however, its ability to improve survival is contradictory.
Health monitoring is shifting towards continuous, ambulatory and clinically comparable wearable devices. Telemedicine and remote diagnosis could harness the capability of mobile cardiac health informa...
The primary objective is to determine whether comprehensive remote follow-up in HF patients with CRT will reduce the combined endpoint of all-cause mortality or worsening heart failure hos...
Remote monitoring of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) for patients has led to efficient, safe, and satisfying analysis of their device and cardiac status; resulting in an ove...
The purpose of this study is to determine if remote monitoring of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), compared with quarterly device interrogations in clinic, will improve patie...
While remote monitoring (RM) technology is currently available and has permitted surveillance and device assessment from any patient location, the use has been inconsistent in Canada, wher...
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is associated with sudden cardiac death and an increased risk of atrial fibrillation and subsequent embolic event. An insertable cardiac monitor will prov...
Types of artificial pacemakers with implantable leads to be placed at multiple intracardial sites. They are used to treat various cardiac conduction disturbances which interfere with the timing of contraction of the ventricles. They may or may not include defibrillating electrodes (IMPLANTABLE DEFIBRILLATORS) as well.
Consultation via remote telecommunications, generally for the purpose of diagnosis or treatment of a patient at a site remote from the patient or primary physician.
Transmission and interpretation of tissue specimens via remote telecommunication, generally for the purpose of diagnosis or consultation but may also be used for continuing education.
Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.
Implanted fluid propulsion systems with self-contained power source for providing long-term controlled-rate delivery of drugs such as chemotherapeutic agents or analgesics. Delivery rate may be externally controlled or osmotically or peristatically controlled with the aid of transcutaneous monitoring.
