Infection of Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices (CIEDs) such as pacemakers, ICDs and CRT devices has a high impact on a patient’s quality of life, morbidity and mortality. In addition, it is a costly burden to healthcare. New solutions are available to reduce these CIED infections; these solutions, the latest evidence and its impact on clinical practice will be presented and discussed in this webinar.


This webinar aims to inform cardiologists, cardiac device implanters and allied healthcare professionals who are involved in the implantation of patients with pacemakers, ICDs and CRTs on:

  • The impact of CIED infections on the patient, the hospital and on the associated costs
  • The latest clinical evidence supporting the use of an antibacterial envelope in preventing infections
  • How the clinical evidence can be implemented in clinical practice

The presenters are completely independent and their views do not necessarily reflect those of Medtronic.
