The new ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines are based on the best available medical evidence, and specifically support the use of device therapy - such as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) - as the standard of care in a broad range of at-risk, indicated heart failure and post-myocardial infarction patients.
A CRT-D device provides cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) for patients with heart failure (HF), a progressive condition that weakens the heart, causes the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles) to beat out of sync, and results in the heart's inability to effectively pump an adequate supply of blood to the body.
