ALTITUDE Clinical Data Show ICD Therapy Saves Lives Without Mortality Increase from Device Shock
Date:5/5/2011

ns conduct remote follow-up of implantable cardiac device patients to monitor specific device information and heart health status.  The system also detects clinical events between scheduled in-clinic visits and sends relevant data directly to physicians.  Since its introduction in 2006, Boston Scientific has enrolled more than 190,000 patients.  

Boston Scientific's latest implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds) feature AcuShock™, an advanced technology that can distinguish between a potentially lethal heart arrhythmia and a non-lethal arrhythmia within seconds, which can help to minimize inappropriate and unnecessary shocks.

"Our devices deliver painless pacing therapy far more than shocks to treat potentially lethal arrhythmias, while demonstrating extremely low rates of inappropriate shocks," said Kenneth Stein, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Cardiac Rhythm Management for Boston Scientific.  "Recent data from a large number of patients from our ALTITUDE program show that nearly 98 percent were free of an inappropriate first shock within the first year of therapy when physicians chose to use AcuShock features in our COGNIS® and TELIGEN® devices."
