CRM Portfolio

Innovation and patient outcomes are at the heart of everything we do

Cardiac Rhythm Management technologies and solutions designed with purpose.

Our commitment to a cardiac rhythm management portfolio

For over 40 years, we have developed groundbreaking technologies that monitor, support diagnosis, and treat irregular heart rhythms, heart failure and sudden cardiac arrest.

38 million

people globally have atrial fibrillation1

63 million

people worldwide affected by heart failure2,3


Sudden cardiac arrest is the third leading cause of death in Europe4-6

Utilising Boston Scientific technologies gives you access to on-demand support, via RhythmCARETM, expertise, with ADVANTICSTM, and learning through EDUCARETM .

Our Digital Solutions

We innovate driven by clinical need

We are continuously evolving our portfolio of devices and digital solutions to meet your complex challenges

We innovate driven by clinical need

S-ICD past, present and future

The EMBLEM™ MRI S-ICD, is the only complete extrathoracic device proven to avoid the serious risks of more invasive lead, leaving the heart and the vasculature UNTOUCHED12-14.

All EMBLEM S-ICDs are by design, compatible with the EMPOWERTM Leadless Pacemaker17*.

Together, we set the pace and advance patient care

Working together, so patients have access to the optimal healthcare solutions

Together, we set the pace and advance patient care

Changing the heart failure landscape

Our HeartLogicTM algorithm can predict potential heart failure events, with a median alert of 34 days in advance15-16.

By tracking trends, clinicians are alerted proactively ahead of an event, without having to wait for patients to report symptoms.

Designed for real life, backed by data

For almost 40 years, our technologies have been improving and changing patients’ lives

Designed for real life, backed by data

Our high voltage devices are designed with patients in mind to ensure we can provide reliable therapies, underpinned by patient safety and real-world evidence.

Real-world LATITUDETM data shows that the actual projected longevity of the EMBLEMTM S-ICD is nearly 9 years18, reducing the number of times a patient will need to undergo device replacements.
