Patients with a cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED), like a pacemaker or a defibrillator, can be of all ages and have different types of implants. You have probably encountered at least one of these in your everyday practice. In this episode, Angelo Auricchio and Archie Rao, both specialists in this area, will discuss types of CIEDs and what they do. They will highlight potential complications with focus on infection. CIED infection is frequently under-recognised and potentially life-threatening. The good news is, it is treatable.
