Perioperative Cardiology update
Evaluation and management of implantable cardiac devices including pacemakers, AICD, watchman devices
1) The use of Cardiac Implantable Devices has made intra-operative management of patients difficult. Depending on the complexity of the device, there needs to be different approaches to providing a safe perioperative experience. Confusion related to how to manage and deactivate these devices leads to surgical delays.
2) Knowledge: Each company has different requirements for management of the implantable devices and confusion as to how to implement these changes leads to delays and potential for damaging the devices Skills/Competence: Some devices require magnets and some require pharma device rep interrogation pre and post procedures. Using the wrong technique can cause damage to the device and potential harm to the patient
3) Learning Objectives: Better understanding of the newer implantable devices and perioperative management to improve patient perioperative management and outcomes
