The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of remote interrogation (readers) of CIEDs in evaluation of suspected TIA/stroke patients, HF or those experiencing syncope. This approach has the potential to advance the practice of CIED evaluation by staff without specialized training in cardiac electrophysiology (non-EP staff). We hypothesize that actionable events will be identified with use of CIED readers. These events may include identification of atrial fibrillation in TIA/stroke patients, percentage biventricular pacing in patients with HF or evaluation of arrhythmic events in syncope patients. We believe that non-EP staff will find CIED readers easy or very easy to use and that time from transmission to analysis for non-EP trained staff will be low.
Subjects with CIEDs undergoing evaluation for TIA/stroke, HF or syncope will be reviewed for inclusion/exclusion criteria. CIED interrogation, demographics and time of interrogation will be collected. Review of interrogation and medical record will be done to evaluate for actionable events including CIED programming, initiation or change in medications, admission/discharge or decision for further testing.

Background: Recommendations for peri-operative management in patients with implanted cardiac electronic devices (CIED) are often based on older data from case reports and small collectives...
The primary objective is to demonstrate a better degree of healing at the incision site and a decrease in erosion with CanGaroo compared to control patients (no envelope, CIED alone).
Aim: To compare patient satisfaction with intramuscular placement of a pacemaker pocket to subcutaneous placement. Patients will be randomized (approximately half i each group) to receive...

Cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) infections are associated with a high mortality. Our aim was to identify key predictors of survival in patients with CIED infections as to be able to detec...
Regulation of the rate of contraction of the heart muscles by an artificial pacemaker.
A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).
A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature atrial contractions or beats caused by signals originating from ectopic atrial sites. The ectopic signals may or may not conduct to the HEART VENTRICLES. Atrial premature complexes are characterized by premature P waves on ECG which are different in configuration from the P waves generated by the normal pacemaker complex in the SINOATRIAL NODE.
A cardiac arrhythmia that is caused by interaction of two independently initiated cardiac impulses of different rates from two separate foci. Generally one focus is the SINOATRIAL NODE, the normal pacemaker. The ectopic focus is usually in the HEART VENTRICLE but can be in the HEART ATRIUM or the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. Modulation of the parasystolic rhythm by the sinus rhythm depends on the completeness of entrance block surrounding the parasystolic focus.
