Prof. Susanne Pedersen has a particular interest in studying ICD patients (complex treatment, the challenges that these patients are faced with including shocks, device advisories, complications, remote monitoring, not to mention their underlying heart disease). In addition, the device technology is continuously changing and it is important to evaluate how patients perceive these changes in technology, such as the entirely new subcutaneous ICD system, which is implanted without leads in and on the heart. In general, do patients see new technology as a benefit or as a burden?
