EUROPACE raises remote monitoring profile

"Moving to a more continuous follow-up approach would have the tremendous advantages of enhancing patient safety, decreasing physician and nurse work load, and allowing health staff to focus on medical emergencies," urged Professor Angelo Auricchio, from the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) and official spokesperson of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), adding that such systems may have the additional advantage of being more cost effective for health care providers.

Despite wide availability of remote monitoring in many European countries, few countries offer patients such systems.

Cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) - which include cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices, implantable cardiovascular monitors and implantable loop recorders - have now been developed with numerous programmable features allowing for storage of substantial amounts of diagnostic information.

The European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) and Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) expert consensus on monitoring of cardiovascular electronic devices, published last year, estimated that in 2006 approximately 250,000 pacemakers and 50,000 ICDs were implanted in Europe (1). The numbers implanted are estimated to be increasing by 5 to 10 % per year.
