Remote ICD Monitoring Boosts Follow-up Compliance
A Cleveland Clinic study suggests that new technology is making cardiac device use more coveneient and effective for patients.
Individuals with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are more likely to follow up with their doctors and adhere strictly to their treatment plans if the patients can transmit device data remotely rather than having to make more in-person visits. Thatís according to a Cleveland Clinic study published in the European Heart Journal. The study was led by Niraj Varma, MD, PhD, in the the Section of Electrophysiology and Pacing at Cleveland Clinic.
