- Understand how the S-ICD is implanted, and how the arrhythmia algorithm and the S-ICD signal discriminate arrhythmias to deliver appropriate therapy and avoid inappropriate therapy.- Understand the morbidity benefits of subcutaneous ICD therapy- Understand which pt population cannot benefit from subcutaneous ICD - Appreciate effectiveness of the subcutaneous ICD to terminate ventricular arrhythmias- Appreciate subcutaneous ICD performance in different patient populations and disease states
- How to identify & screen patients appropriately for the subcutaneous ICD - How to implant the S-ICD- How to avoid pitfalls that diminish it's proper function- How to avoid complications- How to manage inappropriate shocks
