Postoperative cardiac care: Strategies to eliminate common complications, save lives and reduce costs

Wednesday, April 27th, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT  

More than 300,000 individuals receive new cardiovascular implantable electronic devices each year in the U.S. alone. CIEDs are potentially life-saving treatments for several cardiac conditions but are not without risk. Despite dissemination of recommended strategies for prevention of device infections, such as administration of antibiotics before implantation, complication rates continue to rise. These incidents contribute to higher healthcare costs and patient mortality.

During this webinar, an expert will discuss the problem of CIED surgery, surgical-site infections and effective preventative measures.

Learnings include:
  • Best practices for improving surgical outcomes in CIED procedures.
  • Protocols to mitigate the risk of surgical site complications in CIED procedures and increase patient satisfaction.
