Pacemaker & Defibrillator Check
Remote Maintenance Service to Keep Your Heart Beating
Many people rely on implanted pacemakers or defibrillators to stimulate their hearts to maintain a regular pace and rhythm. While the Lithium-ion batteries used to power these devices have a long lifespan, they don’t last forever. At Brookhaven Heart, our medical experts will check your pacemaker or defibrillator on a regular basis to monitor the battery and replace it as needed. Our remote diagnostic services make it easy for you to keep your pacemaker or defibrillator in top condition all of the time.
Helping You Keep Your Heart Ticking
At Brookhaven Heart, we are committed to keeping you and your heart healthy. As part of that goal, we work hard to prevent complications that can impede your heart’s functioning. By ensuring that your pacemaker or defibrillator stay in top condition, for example, we can help prevent serious issues from left or right bundle branch blocks, which occur when something blocks the electrical charge that stimulates your heart muscle. When the natural electrical stimulus fails, a properly working pacemaker or defibrillator will kick in to keep your heart pumping.
If you have a pacemaker or defibrillator, schedule regular on-site or remote checks with your Brookhaven Heart team so we can make sure your device is ready for action at any sign of trouble.
Medicare Pacemaker Checking Guidelines
Medicare recently published new guidelines for both replacing and checking the proper function of a pacemaker. Previously, patients would change out their pacemakers after a given period, whether or not the unit was still functioning. Medicare now requires that the old pacemaker switch over to “end of life” mode before patients replace it. This should ensure that patients take advantage of the new pacemaker model’s full lifespan.
Of course, like any current medical technology, the pacemaker must also be monitored. Your heart doctor will regularly examine the battery and functionality of your pacemaker. Pacemakers address heart conditions. Because of this, the proper care and examination of pacemakers play a vital role in patients’ safety and health. Your heart doctor understands this – and so does Medicare.
