[Englische Übersetzung] Herzschrittmacher und ICD

[Englische Übersetzung] Die Herzschrittmacher- und ICD-Sprechstunde steht für die ambulante Nachsorge von Patienten mit implantierten Herzschrittmachern und Kardiovertoren/Defibrillatoren zur Verfügung. Unsere Ärzte klären auf Wunsch auch ab, ob im Einzelfall ein Herzschrittmacher oder eine kardiale Resynchronisationstherapie benötigt wird.

Pacemaker Outpatient Department

Our pacemaker outpatient department assumes the follow-up of implanted devices of all manufacturers (Medtronic, Biotronik, Boston Scientific, St. Jude Medical, Impulse Dynamics) and is also the contact partner for practicing cardiologists who would like to get a second opinion regarding a suspected malfunction. Patients are given an outpatient follow-up appointment at our pacemaker outpatient department for follow-up care after a device implantation (pacemaker, ICD, CRT, CCM, event recorder, baroreceptor stimulation). At the pacemaker outpatient department, the implanted system is interrogated, in a completely painless procedure, by placement of a special programming wand. Standard parameters (among others, pacing thresholds, sensing, and impedances) are measured, the battery operating time is checked, and the memory is read. The programmed parameters are adjusted if necessary.

A frequently asked question:

What Do I Have to Keep in Mind during and after the Implantation of a Pacemaker, Defibrillator, or CRT?

  • Discontinuation of blood-thinning medication, such as thrombocyte inhibitors (aspirin, clopidogrel, prasugrel, etc.), Marcumar, or new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) is not necessary before the hospital admission
  • Since the leads implanted in the heart first must grow in firmly, no activities should be practiced in the first weeks after the intervention that are associated with strong mechanical stress in the area of the leads (e.g., heavy lifting). However, all routine daily activities can be performed without any problems.
  • The implanted device is checked immediately after the intervention and then again after 6 to 8 weeks at the pacemaker outpatient department. The subsequent follow-up intervals depend on the type of the implanted device and the underlying primary disease (every 4 to 12 months)
  • After implantation of the device, patients receive a pacemaker ID card, which they should carry with them at all times.
  • The most common electronic devices (computer, microwave, garage door opener, TV sets, cell phones at the side opposite of the device, etc.) can be used without any concerns.
  • X-ray images, diagnostic ultrasound examinations, and computer tomography are safe for the function of the implanted device
