Background—Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) are a standard means of sudden cardiac death prevention. Compared with ambulatory visits, remote monitoring (RM) of ICD recipients has improved the quality of health care and spared its resources. Few studies have addressed the organization of RM. We optimized and validated our institutional model of RM organization for ICD recipients. Methods and Results—This observational study of 562 ICD recipients compared 2 RM periods consisting of…

TLDR
Remote monitoring systems that generate alerts following ATP delivery could reduce emergency presentations for ICD shock by 24%, as ATP is a key predictor of impending shock delivery.

Remote monitoring to Improve long-term prognosis in heart failure patients with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators

TLDR
Strong evidence exists for the utility of remote monitoring in cardiac implantable electronic devices for early detection of arrhythmias and evaluation of system performance and improved adherence to remote monitoring and an optimal algorithm for transmitted alerts and their management are warranted in the management of heart failure.

eHealth and mHealth to Manage Distress in Patients with an Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator

TLDR
Clinical experiences and best practices regarding mHealth based strategies used to tele-monitor patients with an ICD are reported/highlighted in this chapter which discusses methodological, clinical and technological issues.

TLDR
A comprehensive eHealth intervention that include goal-setting, monitoring of symptoms of depression, anxiety, and quality of life, psychological treatment, information provision, supportive tools, online dialogues with nursing staff and access to an online community network, may help fill gaps in patients’ quality of care.

Aalborg Universitet Effectiveness of a comprehensive interactive eHealth intervention on patient-reported and clinical outcomes in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator [ ACQUIRE-ICD trial ] study protocol of a national Danish randomised controlled trial

TLDR
A comprehensive eHealth intervention that include goal-setting, monitoring of symptoms of depression, anxiety, and quality of life, psychological treatment, information provision, supportive tools, online dialogues with nursing staff and access to an online community network is evaluated.

Effectiveness of a comprehensive interactive eHealth intervention on patient-reported and clinical outcomes in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator [ACQUIRE-ICD trial]: study protocol of a national Danish randomised controlled trial

TLDR
This study will evaluate the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the ACQUIRE-ICD care innovation, a comprehensive and interactive eHealth intervention, on patient-reported and clinical outcomes and see if the care innovation proves to be beneficial to patients.

Clinic Time Required for Remote and In-Person Management of Patients With Cardiac Devices: Time and Motion Workflow Evaluation

TLDR
The CIED patient management workflow is complex and requires significant staff time, and understanding process steps and time requirements informs the implementation of efficiency improvements, including remote solutions.

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.

Remote Monitoring Reduces Healthcare Use and Improves Quality of Care in Heart Failure Patients With Implantable Defibrillators: The Evolution of Management Strategies of Heart Failure Patients With Implantable Defibrillators (EVOLVO) Study

TLDR
Remote monitoring reduces emergency department/urgent in-office visits and, in general, total healthcare use in patients with ICD or defibrillators for resynchronization therapy and results in increased efficiency for healthcare providers and improved quality of care for patients.

A randomized study of remote follow-up of implantable cardioverter defibrillators: safety and efficacy report of the ECOST trial

TLDR
Observations indicate that long-term HM of ICD is at least as safe as standard ambulatory follow-ups with respect to a broad spectrum of MAE, and it lowered significantly the number of appropriate and inappropriate shocks delivered, and spared the device battery.

Long-Term Outcome After ICD and CRT Implantation and Influence of Remote Device Follow-Up: The ALTITUDE Survival Study

TLDR
Remote follow-up of device data is associated with excellent survival, but arrhythmias that result in device therapy in this population are associated with a higher mortality risk compared with patients who do not require shock therapy.
