Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - Perioperative Pacemaker and Defibrillator Management: What You Need to Know

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

In North America, over 3 million patients have a cardiac pacemaker and nearly 300,000 have an implanted defibrillator.  These devices perform complex heart rhythm management from simple pacing to improving heart failure to terminating ventricular and atrial arrhythmias.  More than 1.5% of these patients undergo surgery yearly, and the ability of the physician anesthesiologist to understand device function, device capabilities, and separate true malfunction from normal, but difficult to understand behavior, can help improve overall surgical outcomes.
