Avoid Delivering Therapies for Nonsustained Arrhythmias in ICD Patients - ADVANCE III

Description:

Although implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs)/cardiac resynchronization therapy-defibrillators (CRT-Ds) have a significant role in preventing sudden cardiac death (SCD) in high-risk patients, especially for secondary prevention, inappropriate ICD shocks are common (8-40%). They are associated with high morbidity as well.
