After the initial implantation of an AICD or pacemaker, the focus shifts to meticulous post-implantation management. This phase involves a series of scheduled check-ups to monitor the device's performance and ensure it aligns with the patient's evolving health needs.
Regular appointments are scheduled to assess the functioning of the implanted devices. During these check-ups, our healthcare team evaluates device metrics, battery life, and overall performance. Adjustments to the device settings may be made based on the patient's health status and the data collected during these appointments.
Customization is a key aspect of AICD and pacemaker management. We, at Cardiac Care Associates have a healthcare team that carefully adjusts the device settings to optimize its performance for the individual patient. If we notice any changes in the health of a patient, we will make some adjustments to address alterations.
While AICDs and pacemakers are highly reliable, it's crucial to be prepared for any unexpected issues. We believe in educating patients on common device-related challenges and outlining clear emergency protocols. Recognizing when to seek immediate medical attention ensures the safety and well-being of individuals with these implanted devices.
Living with an AICD or pacemaker involves navigating certain lifestyle considerations. We ensure our patients receive guidance on activities that may impact the devices and learn which activities are generally safe. Our goal is to empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives while prioritizing their cardiac health.
A comprehensive approach to AICD and pacemaker management includes a consideration of medications. Our specialized team works in tandem with patients to ensure that prescribed medications do not adversely affect device function.
