Pacing supplement: Remote monitoring

John Morgan

Abstract

Professor John M Morgan The principles of remote monitoring In clinical care remote monitoring entails: the collection of patient biometric data (by external or implanted data collection devices) that is relevant to patient disease management (e.g. glucose sensors in the management of diabetes mellitus); or collection of data relevant to management of that device and (if so enabled) biometric data recorded by that cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) relevant to the patient’s disease state (e.g. arrhythmia/heart failure status), when a patient has an active CIED, such as a cardiac pacemaker/implantable defibrillator.

Pacing supplement: Remote follow-up of implantable cardiac devices – a physiologist’s experience

Matthew Swift

Abstract

Mr Matthew Swift Introduction The evolution of the remote monitoring of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) in the last 10 years has seen a paradigm shift in technology, from the original analogue phone remote monitors with their induction loop headers, to the radio frequency (RF) devices we often see in use today, which require little patient interaction and can be remotely scheduled by the device clinic. Furthermore, modern devices perform routine tests assessing device function automatically, such that patients only require in-hospital visits for re-programming. Within the next couple of years, with the advent of Bluetoot
