Patient Stories

Fayetteville, NC Pacemaker Monitoring Program

Some patients experience abnormally slow or fast heart rates, which require the regulation of a pacemaker or defibrillator permanently implanted below the collarbone. For these patients, Cape Fear Valley Heart & Vascular Center is proud to offer our pacemaker surveillance program -- a monitoring program designed to optimize the performance and functioning of these devices.

Here’s how our Fayetteville, NC pacemaker monitoring program works:

  • Pacemaker & defibrillator patients are given a transmitter that sends EKG data to the heart center three times a year
  • Pacemaker patients come into the clinic once a year for an in-depth pacemaker performance evaluation
  • Defibrillator patients come into the clinic every three months for an in-depth defibrillator performance evaluation
