LIVING WITH YOUR CRT-P, CRT-D, PULMONARY ARTERY PRESSURE SENSOR OR LEFT VENTRICULAR ASSIST DEVICE (LVAD)

Receiving a pulmonary artery (PA) pressure sensor, CRT-P, CRT-D or left ventricular assist device (LVAD) can be a major step toward living a full and active life. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions as you begin life after treatment. One way you can take care of yourself is to stay informed about what living with your cardiac device can involve.

CRT-D

An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a minicomputer that is implanted under the skin of your upper chest area. A cardiac resynchronization therapy implantable cardioverter defibrillator (CRT-D) is a type of specialized ICD used to treat heart failure.

Learn more about how a CRT-D works and the innovative CRT-D technology Abbott offers.

CRT-P

A cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (or CRT-P) treats heart failure by resynchronizing electrical impulses in the heart to improve its ability to pump blood.

Learn more about how CRT-Ps work and what innovative CRT-P technology Abbott offers.

LEFT VENTRICULAR ASSIST DEVICE

A left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is a mechanical heart pump designed to help people when their hearts are too weak to pump blood.

Learn more about how an LVAD works, who an LVAD is for, and what innovative LVAD technology Abbott offers.

REMOTE MONITORING

Remote monitoring is a way for you to communicate critical information about your heart’s activities directly to your doctor’s office or clinic at any time. This can reduce your number of hospital or clinic visits and improve the information your doctor has about your condition.
