Levels of Physical Activity and Physical Fitness in Pediatric Pacemaker Patients: A Cro...
https://doi.org/10.1007/s00246-020-02384-1
Pediatric Cardiology; Teber S, Saglam M et. al.

May 31st, 2020 - Children with heart diseases have reduced physical activity (PA) levels relative to their peers, which in turn increases cardiovascular risk. To the best of our knowledge, physical fitness and objectively measured PA levels have not been previousl...

Is transjugular insertion of a temporary pacemaker a safe and effective approach?
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7217466
PloS One; Chun KJ, Gwag HB et. al.

May 12th, 2020 - Temporary pacemakers (TPMs) are usually inserted in an emergency situation. However, there are few reports available regarding which route of access is best or what the most preferred approach is currently in tertiary hospitals. This study aimed t...

Contemporary use of devices in chronic heart failure in the Netherlands.
https://doi.org/10.1002/ehf2.12740
ESC Heart Failure References; Raafs AG, Linssen GCM et. al.

May 11th, 2020 - Despite previous surveys regarding device implantation rates in heart failure (HF), insight into the real-world management with devices is scarce. Therefore, we investigated device implantation rates in HF with reduced left ventricular ejection fr...

Safety and efficacy of leadless pacemaker for cardioinhibitory vasovagal syncope.
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.hrthm.2020.05.006
Heart Rhythm; Turagam MK, Gopinathannair R et. al.

May 11th, 2020 - Single-chamber leadless pacemakers (LPs) have been shown to be an effective alternative to conventional transvenous pacemakers (CTPs), but their benefit in the context of cardioinhibitory vasovagal syncope (CI-VVS) is unknown.backgrou OBJECTIVE: T...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7201960
BMC Geriatrics; Puppala VK, Hofeld BC et. al.

May 7th, 2020 - In patients with permanent pacemakers (PPM), physical activity (PA) can be monitored using embedded accelerometers to measure pacemaker detected active hours (PDAH), a strong predictor of mortality. We examined the impact of a PA Counseling (PAC) ...

Traditional Pacemaker Complications Down With Leadless Device
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/arrhythmias/73736

Jun 27th, 2018 - Patients who got the Nanostim leadless pacemaker instead of a transvenous one had fewer complications through up to 18 months of follow-up, researchers said. Those receiving the leadless cardiac pacemaker (LCP) generally had fewer complications th...

Cath Lab Recap: Killer Pacemakers; Heart Monitoring Underwear
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/pci/61949

Dec 8th, 2016 - Hacker-researchers were able to access ten types of implantable devices -- including pacemakers -- and find exploits that could possibly kill patients remotely from across a room. (The Register) The Abiomed Impella CP device won expanded FDA appro...

CMS to Cover Leadless Pacemakers ... But Only in Studies
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/arrhythmias/61440

Nov 14th, 2016 - The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services aims to cover leadless pacemakers, but only in the context of use in FDA-approved studies, according to a draft of the agency's national coverage determination for the devices. The document details the ...

Women Receive Far Fewer CIEDs Than Men but Have Higher Survival Rates After Implant
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/847145

Jun 28th, 2015 - MILAN, ITALY — Women are being short-changed when it comes to receiving cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs), which is especially concerning because they actually have higher survival rates than men after implantation of certain device t...
