Pacemaker/ICD Clinic

Fremont Health Cardiovascular Care clinic offers complete and up to date device follow-up for all types of Pacemakers and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs). Our trained Pacemaker/ICD Clinic staff work directly with our physicians to coordinate patient care. We use a combination of in-clinic visits and home monitoring to offer Cardiac Device follow-up that is convenient for the patient and still holds to the highest standards of safety. We are dedicated to providing the best care possible using all the latest technology while still maintaining personal contact with all of our patients.

Regular cardiac device follow-up insures not only proper device function, but allows us to monitor the occurrence and amount of any recorded arrhythmias. For those patients who have an ICD with Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT), device follow-up also plays a key role in heart failure management. Our use of wireless home remote monitoring provides a higher level of confidence for our patients, knowing that we automatically receive notice of potential problems without waiting for a scheduled check. We contact all patients by phone with the results of their home monitor transmissions. In the event of an abnormal transmission, if the physician determines it needs to be addressed, the patient is contacted and further in-clinic testing can be performed as needed.

Above all, we encourage our patients to call with any questions or concerns they have regarding their pacemaker or ICD. We recognize that using the latest technology is essential for improving patient safety and outcomes, but technology can never replace the personal relationships we build with our patients.
