The frequency of a patient’s evaluation is determined by the patient’s needs, the age and type of pacing device, and the cardiologist’s recommendations. A typical schedule will include both clinical visits and remote/telephone monitoring. Telephone monitoring utilizes specifically designed transmitter units which allow the staff to analyze how well the pacemaker is working while the patient is at home.
The trained technician will review information from the device to check for function and battery life and make any adjustments recommended by the cardiologist.
Pacemaker Clinic visits are by appointment only.
