Passavant’s Teleheart Service provides two key services for patients with cardiac problems: Event Monitoring and a Pacemaker Clinic.
Event Monitoring is used as a diagnostic tool for patients living at home with symptoms of cardiac arrhythmia. To do this, patients are asked to wear a monitoring device for 30 days. When they experience a cardiac arrhythmia, they simply push a button on the device that signals the PassavantReceiving Center to record the arrhythmia and alert the staff. Once the information is received, a Teleheart nurse reviews the recording for any abnormalities and documents the information for future follow-up.
The Pacemaker Clinic is for patients with permanent pacemakers and allows patients to hook their pacemaker up to Teleheart via a telephone line. The transmission is checked by the Teleheart nurse to ensure the unit is functioning properly and has adequate battery life.
