CRT - ICD Special Situation

Cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs), including permanent pacemakers (PMs), cardiac resynchronization therapy devices with defibrillators (CRT-Ds) or without (CRT-Ps), and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), are implanted worldwide in increasing numbers. Post-procedural complications are associated with increased patient morbidity, healthcare costs, and even mortality. Published data on these complications are based primarily on secondary analyses of strictly controlled randomized trials, observational single-center studies, or registry-based studies

Basics of CRT - ICD

A CRT-D is an implantable cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) defibrillator for patients with heart failure. The device monitors the heart's rhythm, detects irregularities, and corrects them with electrical impulses. Like an implantable defibrillator (ICD), a CRT-D is designed to stop life-threatening ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation with relatively weak and painless stimulation therapy or electrical shocks. CRT-Ds differ from ICDs in that they help your heart’s lower chambers – the ventricles – work in tandem. To do this, CRT-Ds have three leads – wires that deliver energy to the heart – rather than one or two, as in an ICD.

Pacemakers - Special Situation and Complications

This course discusses about the more common pacemaker complications that we are likely to encounter in the ED. There are different ways to break these complications down. Some resources categorize complications based on whether they arose from the procedure itself and/or based on the timing of the presentation. However, since many of these complications can occur at any time, we will focus on two categories: procedural complications and general complications.

Basics of Pacemaker

This course teaches the clinicians about the pacemakers and gives them a solid grounding in pacemaker therapy. You will learn the following things in it.

  • How pacemakers work
  • What can be done in order to optimize a patient’s pacemaker therapy
  • How to recognize and troubleshoot common problems.
