This is a prospective observational multi-center multi-national study of the characteristics and outcomes of patients receiving implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) in the Arab Gu...
The purpose is to further evaluate the operation, safety, and feasibility of a subcutaneous implantable defibrillator (S-ICD) system in patients who require an implantable cardioverter def...
The MADIT S-ICD trial is designed to evaluate if subjects with a prior myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus and a relatively preserved ejection fraction of 36-50% will have a survival ...
The aim of this prospective observational study is to evaluate the safety, over a follow-up of 2 years, of two strategies, consisting in performing or not performing defibrillation testin...
Evaluate the operation of the Implantable Subcutaneous String Defibrillator (ISSD) system in patients who require an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) using an emulator.
The implantable cardioverter defibrillator provides effective treatment for the prevention of sudden cardiac arrest but significant risks associated with transvenous implantation persist. The subcutan...
Clinical guidelines recommend cardioverter defibrillator implantation for patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction. Despite this, women and minorities have been less likely to receive...
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator aids in the prevention of cardiac arrest by delivering an electrical shock in the presence of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. Although implantable card...
Suboptimal positioning of the subcutaneous implantable defibrillator (S-ICD) increases the defibrillation threshold and risk of conversion failure.
Use and Outcomes of Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) After Trans-venous ICD Extraction: an Analysis of Current Clinical Practice and a Comparison with Trans-venous ICD Reimplantation.
The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) does not require the insertion of any leads into the cardiovascular system.
The portion of an interactive computer program that issues messages to and receives commands from a user.
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.
Using computer technology to create and maintain an environment and project a user's physical presence in that environment allowing the user to interact with it.
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.
Analog or digital communications device in which the user has a wireless connection from a telephone to a nearby transmitter. It is termed cellular because the service area is divided into multiple "cells." As the user moves from one cell area to another, the call is transferred to the local transmitter.
