Cardiac Clinics

Device Clinic

Carolina Cardiology Consultants provides full service device clinics at our Greenville and Greer offices. The clinics are staffed with specially-trained Registered Nurses and Certified Cardiac Device Specialists. They work together to monitor the function of single, dual and biventricular devices.

If you have a device implanted by one of our cardiologists, you will be followed every 90 days by our pacemaker staff. Your first visit after implantation will be at the office, at that time the staff evaluates and adjusts your device. They will also assess your general well being and response to the device. After this appointment you will be given future device appointments.

To sum up, your device will be checked 4 times per year, twice in the office and twice on the phone. It is imperative that you keep these appointments so the proper functioning of your device can be assured.

The staff in the device clinics also “hooks up” or attaches event and holter monitors. They manage the day to day readings and communicate directly with the cardiologists regarding the monitor results. They will educate you on the use of the device and provide ongoing instruction as needed.

The Pacemaker clinic is a very important piece of our practice and we know you will be satisfied with your care.

Steps to prepare for the procedure:

  • Wear loose fitting shirt.
  • Check in front office.
  • EKG pads to monitor heart will be applied by personnel doing the follow-up.
  • The results of your check will be discussed with you and the physician.
