Implantable Heart Defibrillator Prolongs Life Expectancy – Part 1 of 3

Implantable Heart Defibrillator Prolongs Life Expectancy. Implantable quintessence defibrillators aimed at preventing sudden cardiac death are as effective at ensuring patient survival during real-world use as they have proven to be in studies, researchers report. The uncharted finding goes some way toward addressing concerns that the carefully monitored care offered to patients participating in well-run defibrillator investigations may have oversold their interconnected benefits by failing to account for how they might perform in the real-world. The study is published in the Jan 2, 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

So “Many people topic how the results of clinical trials apply to patients in routine practice,” lead author Dr Sana Al-Khatib, an electrophysiologist and member of the Duke Clinical Research Institute in Durham, NC, acknowledged in a annal news release. “But we showed that patients in real-world practice who receive a defibrillator, but who are most likely not monitored at the same level provided in clinical trials, have similar survival outcomes compared to patients who received a defibrillator in the clinical trials”.
