  16. Wrap up and Brief Summary This has been a brief overview of the LATITUDE ® Patient Management system. Please see your LATITUDE patient manual for more specific information. LATITUDE® Patient Management System from Boston Scientific CRM 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. (Rev. I)
