BACKGROUND The use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) has been proven effective in the prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and constitutes standard of care in appropriate populations. Combining a pressure sensing system with ICD therapy represents the first attempt to provide continuous hemodynamic monitoring using a device previously designed exclusively for SCD protection. METHODS REDUCE is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, single-blind, parallel-controlled trial… CONTINUE READING
