Oregon Heart Center has our own device clinic which helps us to monitor and assure your heart device is working properly.
We offer in-office and remote monitoring. We work closely with the manufacturer of your device to ensure your pacemaker, implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), or loop recorder device operate with excellence. Whether your device was placed by one of our providers or at another clinic, we are happy to assist in your care.
A procedure in which a small electronic device is implanted under the skin and sends electrical impulses to the heart muscle to maintain a suitable heart rate and to prevent slow heart rates.
Also known as an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD). The procedure in which a small electronic device is implanted under the skin that constantly monitors your heart rate and rhythm. When it detects a very fast, abnormal heart rhythm, it delivers electrical energy to the heart muscle to help the heart to beat in a normal rhythm again.
The procedure involves implanting a half-dollar sized pacemaker, usually just below the collarbone. Three wires (leads) connected to the device monitor the heart rate to detect heart rate irregularities and emit tiny pulses of electricity to correct them. In effect, it is “resynchronizing” the heart.
A type of continuous recorder which is implanted under the skin of the chest for extended monitoring. This device can record the electrical signals from your heart and provide helpful data.
