This is the fourth 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 follow-up. The focus is on patient and device assessment techniques used by device follow-up clinics to determine optimal device programming that will best serve the patient’s clinical and lifestyle needs. We will look at patient assessment and education, pacemaker, ICD and CRT assessment and programming. In addition, device troubleshooting techniques and EGM interpretation will be discussed. Other topics include strategies for managing patients with devices on advisory, ventricular tachyarrhythmia detection and SVT discrimination in ICDs, and incorporating remote patient monitoring into the patient’s device follow-up schedule.
