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.
This course consists of 6 modules and you have
to complete the assessment at the end of each module to proceed to the next module.
After the successful completion of all modules, you will be provided a certificate.
