Cardiac Implanted Electronic Device Clinic
This clinic’s mission is to provide comprehensive care to optimize the function of loop recorders, pacemakers, defibrillators and heart failure devices to meet the unique needs of each patient for optimal well-being. Our dedicated team members receive advanced training from the medical device industry — Gabriella Haftel, RN, Certified Cardiac Device Specialist has been working in the field of implanted cardiac devices since 2006, and received certification from the International board of Heart Rhythm Examiners as Certified Cardiac Device Specialists in 2013. As a registered nurse for more than 30 years, Haftel is well-versed in the evolving technology and providing patients with individualized care, ensuring devices are programmed optimally to suit their needs.
We utilize manufacturer-specific programmers including Biotronik, Boston Scientific, Medtronic and St. Jude Medical to collect diagnostic data from cardiac electronic devices to form appropriate treatment plans. Our cardiology/electrophysiology physician specialists pair newly implanted cardiac devices with wired or cellular adapted remote monitors, so data is gathered automatically and remotely. Remote monitoring like this has become the standard of care and is recommended by the Heart Rhythm Society. Our ability to discover arrhythmia data and changes in monitored values can lead to early intervention and promotes best clinical outcomes, including increased survival benefit.
Post-implantation, our patients are seen in the clinic for education and to evaluate the surgical site. Automatic remote transmission can alert our specialists in the clinic, promoting to rapid response times.
