Holy Family Memorial has renewed its agreement with BIOTRONIK, Inc. to continue use of BIOTRONIK’s Evia pacemaker. Holy Family Memorial has selected BIOTRONIK because it provides industry leading innovation for its patients.
BIOTRONIK provides cellular and landline transmitted home monitoring services at no cost to patients, saving each patient up to $16 per month. This feature allows for daily, automatic transmission of a patient’s pacemaker information to the physician’s office without any action from the patient, alerting the physician to potential problems. Patients also benefit from fewer visits to the clinic for routine pacemaker checks.
BIOTRONIK offers the only pacemaker with Closed Loop Stimulation (CLS) technology. This means when the sinus node, or natural pacemaker of the heart, does not work properly, CLS interacts with the patient’s cardiovascular control system to detect changes in the heart’s squeezing to increase the heart rate. This mimics the body’s natural response.
