About Your Cardiac Implantable Electronic Device (CIED)

Welcome to MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute’s online education on cardiac implantable electronic devices. This series of educational videos will include information about the purpose of the device you’ll have implanted; how, when and why you’ll follow up with your team; and how you’ll transmit recordings from your loop recorder, defibrillator, or pacemaker to your arrhythmia device clinic. We’ll also walk you through the actions you will need to take when you experience certain symptoms and events. Please view this with your family and loved ones, and contact your care team if you have any questions.
