With increasing awareness of the indications of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) therapy, the number of patients with ICDs has been growing rapidly. Patient with an ICD require high-quality care and intense follow-up to ensure safe and effective device performance. Given the expanding use and the complexity of these devices, there has been an urgent need to improve the safety and cost-effectiveness of ICD follow-up and to alleviate the burden of the pacemaker clinics.

TLDR
Home monitoring is feasible and associated with an early detection of medical and technical events and functionality and safety of HM ICDs are evaluated.

Assessment of a remote monitoring system for implantable cardioverter defibrillators

TLDR
A multicentre study in five Italian hospitals to assess the feasibility of a remote monitoring service for the follow-up of implanted cardiac devices found it to be more efficient than conventional face-to-face follow- up in terms of the time savings.

Remote Monitoring of Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator

TLDR
Remote monitoring of ICDs can decrease the need for many patient visits and, thereby, probably reduce expense.

TLDR
Remote ICD monitoring in patients with BS decreases outpatient consultations and may help prevent ISs, according to a mean follow-up of 33 +/- 17 months.

“Home monitoring” for early detection of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator failure

TLDR
This pilot study demonstrates that HM enables early detection of ICD failure and appears to enhance patient safety.

Contributions of remote monitoring to the follow-up of implantable cardioverter–defibrillator leads under advisory

TLDR
Remote monitoring allowed the early and reliable detection of ICD leads failure without requiring any patient intervention in 40 recipients of high-voltage ICDs, prone to fracture and under advisory since October 2007.

TLDR
ICD remote monitoring can potentially diagnose >99.5% of arrhythmia- or device-related problems if combined with clinical follow-up by the local general practitioner and/or referring cardiologist and to which extent its use can reduce in-office visits.

TLDR
The potential role of home monitoring to reduce inappropriate shocks in implantable cardioverter-defibrillator patients due to lead failure is considered, and improved strategies to prevent inappropriate shocks are clearly needed.
