HOME MONITORING, TELEMETRY
(INCL. IMPLANTED DEFIBRILLATORS/ICD)
If you wear a pacemaker or implantable defibrillator (so-called ICDs), it is important that it is programmed optimally for you and is checked at regular intervals. The battery capacity, the functioning of the electrodes, how often the pacemaker has had to stimulate and what special features have been documented in the memory since the last check-up are checked. Changes originating from your heart or the device often make it necessary to adjust the programming.
The pacemaker is interrogated and controlled by means of telemetry. As a patient, you do not feel the interrogation itself. During the electrode control, you may perceive your heartbeat as slightly faster or slower for a very short time. In our practice, all pacemaker systems available in Germany can be checked with many years of experience. If you experience any discomfort between the agreed check-ups, do not wait until the next check-up, but contact us.
