Abstract

Telemedicine in Rhythmology - Prepared for Pandemics Abstract. The COVID-19 pandemic urged us to reorganize many of our daily clinical processes. In this regard, the protection of vulnerable patient populations is of particular importance, since any visit to the outpatient clinic implies the risk of exposure to and infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Nevertheless, patients with a pacemaker, an implantable cardioverter/defibrillator (ICD) or an implantable cardiac monitor need regular follow-up to assure proper functionality of these devices. Remote monitoring is the ideal solution to meet the requirements of patient protection and device safety during pandemics. Besides, remote monitoring has already proved its value in normal times. This article summarizes the functionality of remote monitoring, describes the patient benefit and associated challenges and opportunities.
