CARD 5302 - Cardiac Rhythm Device Implant

Cardiology/Cardiovascular Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

This is the third of five theoretical courses intended to introduce you to the field of Cardiac Rhythm Device Technology. This course is designed to give you a more in-depth understanding of cardiac rhythm device implant. The focus is on device and lead testing techniques to determine the optimal intraoperative placement of a cardiac rhythm management device (CRMD) system in the patient. We will discuss the surgical procedure, pacemaker, ICD, and CRT lead implant and assessment. In addition, CRMD system technology will be examined as well as new or alternative technologies utilized in clinical practice. Other topics include implant indications, acute and delayed patient complications, and lead extraction.
