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

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...
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 specific aims of the patient intervention are to: 1. increase patient knowledge about pacemakers (PM) and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) 2. help patien...
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...
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 ...
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...
The implantable cardioverter defibrillator provides effective treatment for the prevention of sudden cardiac arrest but significant risks associated with transvenous implantation persist. The subcutan...
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...
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator has become the first-line therapy for prevention of sudden cardiac death. Controversial results still exist regarding the effectiveness of implantable cardiovert...
A subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) is an alternative device for prevention of sudden cardiac death, without any leads within the heart. Patients implanted with any type of I...
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.
