Clinical Evaluation Of Remote Monitoring With Direct Alerts To Reduce Time From Event To Clinical Decision

2014-08-27 03:15:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

St. Jude Medical developed the Merlin.net™ Patient Care Network (Merlin.net™ PCN) to augment or replace routine scheduled in-clinic visits.

This investigation is designed with the hypothesis that detection of events (system integrity and diagnostic related) through Direct Alerts™ via Remote Monitoring allow clinicians an earlier opportunity to address and resolve events and may therefore improve patient care.

Study Design

Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

The Patient Meets ACC/AHA/ESC Guidelines for Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) or Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT-D) Device

Intervention

Implantation of an ICD/CRT-D device, Merlin.NET PCN

Location

Health Economic Evaluation of Remote Follow up for Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) Patients

The purpose of the study is to define the economic value of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) remote monitoring for hospitals, third payers and patients in Italy. Aims of the st...

Electronic Patient Notification of Remote ICD Data: Impact of Patient Engagement on Outcomes in the Merlin.Net™

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...

Enhancing Knowledge Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators (ICDs)

The specific aims of the patient intervention are to: 1. increase patient knowledge about pacemakers (PM) and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) 2. help patien...

Registry of Device Implantation

The implantable device therapy for cardiac arrhythmias has been an established therapy, and one of the common standard procedures in cardiac clinical practice. Pacemakers, implantable car...

Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial With Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator

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 ...

Persistent sex disparities in implantable cardioverter-defibrillator therapy.

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...

Exploring the patients' experiences of living with a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator.

The implantable cardioverter defibrillator provides effective treatment for the prevention of sudden cardiac arrest but significant risks associated with transvenous implantation persist. The subcutan...

Is it possible to practice sports with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator?

Why? The potential risks of sport for an ICD recipient include appropriate and inappropriate shocks, device damage and worsening of the underlying cardiopathy. These risks should be compared to the ph...

Deactivation of Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators in Heart Failure: A Systematic Review.

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...

Conscious sedation during subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator implantation using the intermuscular technique.

The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) system is an established therapy for the prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and an alternative to a transvenous implantable cardio...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Directions or principles presenting current or future rules of policy for assisting health care practitioners in patient care decisions regarding diagnosis, therapy, or related clinical circumstances. The guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, professional societies, governing boards, or by the convening of expert panels. The guidelines form a basis for the evaluation of all aspects of health care and delivery.

Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (AUDITORY BRAIN STEM IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than to the inner ear as in COCHLEAR IMPLANTATION.

A systematic statement of policy rules or principles. Guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, professional societies, governing boards, or by convening expert panels. The text may be cursive or in outline form but is generally a comprehensive guide to problems and approaches in any field of activity. For guidelines in the field of health care and clinical medicine, PRACTICE GUIDELINES AS TOPIC is available.

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.

Machine readable patient or equipment identification device using radio frequency from 125 kHz to 5.8 Ghz.
