Introduction
To resolve any medical purpose or to diagnose any
health related issues, the involvement of
specific Medical Device Consulting Services is
essential. For different usage purpose different
medical devices are available which
differentiates its significant role in specific
diagnoses. Hence, medical device manufacturers
manufacture specific medical devices to detect
specific disease. Similar to the drug approval,
the design of medical device also gets approval
from Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Types of Medical Devices
Usually the disease onset occurs with known
reasons by alarming our body, but cardiovascular
is one such system which does not send any
signals before any onset of the symptoms like
chest pain, cardiac arrest etc. Hence it is
necessary to diagnose a person who visits
diagnostic labs for a routine check-up prior to
any damage to the cardiovascular system. There
are various types of medical devices available in
the diagnostic labs to treat damage in the
cardiovascular system. Such as implantable
cardiovascular defibrillator (ICD), pacemaker,
biventricular pacemaker, and implantable cardiac
loop recorder.

Implantable Cardiovascular Defibrillator
Some patients experience fast and irregular
heartbeats, which can be diagnosed with an
implantable cardiovascular defibrillator (ICD), a
cardiac medical device. This device detects if
the blood pumping process has stopped in the
lower chambers of heart ventricles. For such
patients ICD along with biventricular pacemaker
is implanted inside the patients body under the
collarbone which when senses abnormal heart
rate. It automatically sends electrical pulses
internally to the heart and blows back the
hearts rhythm to normal condition.

Pacemaker
  • A pacemaker is a small single device that
    is arranged inside the heart tissue to send
    signals to release the abnormal cardiac rhythm
    seen in bradycardia to normalize pulse rate.
  • This device is powered by battery, when the
    natural pacemaker of heart fails to beat
    normally, the artificial pacemaker mimics as
    natural pacemaker and executes hearts normal
    function.
  • Another pacemaker is known as biventricular
    pacemaker, placed on both the sides at right and
    left ventricles of heart.
  • Heart failures like cardiomyopathy develops due
    to weak and stretched heart muscles explains the
    severity of heart beat.

Implantable Loop Recorder
The implantable loop recorder (ILR) is an
intravenous monitoring medical device which is
used to detect electrical pulses in the heart for
a long period of time when compared with the
constant electrical activity found in the
ECGs. It helps in identifying the specific
reason why there is a palpitation, assessing
bradycardia episodes before implanting a
permanent pacemaker, and it checks the average
heart rate in atrial fibrillation and so
on. Hence, this practice is a novel chance for
physicians to check the systematic heart rhythm
screening with possible effects on patients
undergoing antiarrhythmic and anticoagulant
therapy management.
