Launching this month, a new article series in EP Lab Digest will address key aspects of remote monitoring for cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). In this ongoing monthly section throughout 2016, various clinicians in the field of cardiac electrophysiology will explore current and future challenges and possibilities with respect to remote monitoring.
