To make sure your pacemaker and ICD are working properly, you will need to have it checked a few times each year. During this check-up, the information stored on your device’s computer will be read and analyzed. The battery and other settings are also checked. If adjustments need to be made to your device, it is done using an electronic wand that is placed over the skin where your device is implanted. Once a month, representatives from each of the device manufacturers are in our clinic to assist with pacemaker and ICD checks.
