Remote Device Monitoring


What is remote device monitoring

Remote" because you don't need to be at your doctor's office to have your device checked.

"Monitoring" because the remote system can check your device for specific information per your doctor’s orders (for example, if the battery status and event information) and as scheduled by your doctor.

How often your device is monitored is determined by your doctor.

What is remote device monitoring?

Remote Device Monitoring


What is remote device monitoring1
What is remote device monitoring?

All patients should have regular monitoring of their device and health.

Three factors determine what type of monitoring system your doctor will prescribe for you:

  • The type of device you have.

  • The manufacturer of your device.

  • What you and your doctor decide is the best approach for you.

Why are there so many types of monitoring systems?

Why do I use one monitoring system for my device, while someone else I know uses a different system?

Remote Device Monitoring


1 type of device you have

If you have a pacemaker (Pacemaker or CRT-P):

Trans-telephonic monitoring (TTM) offers real-time transmission of heart rate sent over phone line.

In-home remote monitoring as scheduled (manufacturer dependent) offers real-time device and heart data sent over phone line to web-based system.

If you have an implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD, CRT-D):

In-home remote monitoring as scheduled by physician with data sent over a secure phone line to web-based system.

Common features of remote device monitoring systems include the following:

Scheduled Remote Follow-Up

Daily and Weekly Device Checks

  • May replace some in-clinic follow-ups

  • Implanted device interrogation at a predetermined time set by your doctor

  • Checks specific device and heart health information

  • Interrogations between follow-ups

  • Daily and/or weekly device interrogations set by your doctor

  • Checks specific device information

Remote Device Monitoring


What is a scheduled remote follow up

Routine scheduled follow-up:

Gathers data from your implanted device:

Real-time picture of your heart rate (EGM)

Specific information about your device and heart health (manufacturer specific)

Appears on a secure website for review

You may get a note from your clinic before or after your in-home follow-up appointment.

You may get a bill for the in-home follow-up.

If you have a wireless system:

The monitor will perform the follow-up automatically.

If you have a wanded system:

You will participate in the follow-up at the scheduled time.

What is a scheduled remote follow-up?

Remote Device Monitoring


How are daily and or weekly checks done
How are daily and/or weekly checks done?

Remote Device Monitoring

  • Your doctor sets a schedule determining when your device will be checked.

  • Depending on the device you have:

    • A wireless communicator will automatically receive information, or

    • You will hold “wand” over your device to allow your monitor to receive your device information.

  • Information from your device is collected by your monitor then sent by a phone line to your doctor’s secure web site.

  • Your doctor/nurse then checks your information which they have received.


How is information sent

Most in-home monitoring systems use standard land lines to connect to the internet.

If you have DSL (digital phone lines), you may need an adapter for your phone system.

Some systems use cellular technology.

Keep the monitor connected to a power outlet and a phone line at all times, unless otherwise directed by the manufacturer.

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Devices

  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers (CRT-P) and defibrillators (CRT-D) are used to treat heart failure patients who have symptoms despite the best available drug therapy. These patients also have an electrical condition in which the lower chambers of the heart contract in an uncoordinated way and a mechanical condition in which the heart pumps less blood than normal. CRT-Ps and CRT-Ds are not for everyone including people with separate implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (CRT-P only) or certain steroid allergies. Procedure risks include infection, tissue damage, and kidney failure. In some cases, the device may be unable to respond to your heart rhythm (CRT-P only) or may be unable to respond to irregular heartbeats or may deliver inappropriate shocks (CRT-D only).

    Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators

  • An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) can protect you from the effects of sudden cardiac arrest by reviving your heart rhythm. An ICD is not for everyone, including people with certain steroid allergies. Procedure risks include infection and tissue damage. In some cases, the device may not respond to irregular heartbeats or may deliver inappropriate shocks.

    Pacemakers

  • A pacemaker system can monitor and treat your heart rhythm by delivering electrical energy to pace your heart when it senses a slow rhythm. A pacemaker is not for everyone, including patients with certain steroid allergies. Patients who have additional medical conditions that may not allow the pacemaker to function appropriately should not receive a device. Procedure risks include infection, tissue damage and kidney failure. In some cases, the device may not respond to your heart rhythm.

    For All Devices

  • In rare cases severe complications or device failures can occur. Electrical or magnetic fields can affect the device. Only your doctor knows what is right for you. These devices are available by prescription only. Individual results may vary.

    Device Quality and Reliability

  • It is Boston Scientific’s intent to provide implantable devices of high quality and reliability. However, these devices may exhibit malfunctions that may result in lost or compromised ability to deliver therapy. Refer to Boston Scientific’s CRM product performance report on www.bostonscientific.com for more information about device performance, including the types and rates of malfunctions that these devices have experienced historically. While historical data may not be predictive of future device performance, such data can provide important context for understanding the overall reliability of these types of products. Also, it is important that you talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits associated with the implantation of a device.

Important safety information1
Important Safety Information as a weight scale and blood pressure cuff, to enhance your follow-up care.

The LATITUDE Patient Management system is used to remotely communicate with a compatible pulse generator device from BSC CRM and send data to a central database. The LATITUDE system is contraindicated for use with any pulse generator other than a device from BSC CRM.

The LATITUDE system is designed to tell your doctor within 24 hours if alert conditions are detected by the Communicator. However, alert notification cannot occur if:

  • The Communicator is unplugged or is not able to connect to the LATITUDE system through an active phone line.

  • Your device and the Communicator cannot establish and complete a communication session. This session must be initiated by you if you have a device that uses inductive telemetry (Communicator that has a wand).

  • The Communicator becomes damaged or it malfunctions

    Up to two weeks may go by before the LATITUDE system detects the events mentioned above, and additional time may be required for notification and resolution of the condition.

    The wanded and wireless Communicator uses a radio frequency (RF) communication system to communicate with an optional weight scale and blood pressure monitor. This communication can be disrupted by electromagnetic interference. Avoid placing your Communicator next to or in the immediate vicinity of other wireless products and sources of electromagnetic energy. The wireless Communicator uses RF to also send and receive signals from the implanted device (RF enabled devices only). Using the blue Interrogate button more than as prompted by your Communicator or as instructed by your physician may lead to a decrease in the battery life of your implanted device. Your communicator is designed to be used in the continental US, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. These devices are available by prescription only.
