LATITUDE Consult™ System
Fast Device Checks. Efficient Patient Care.
The LATITUDE Consult System gives your team the ability to quickly conduct pacemaker and defibrillator device checks. One analysis found that 90% of the time there was no need for a device expert to be there in person.1
The LATITUDE Consult System provides rapid diagnostic data plus 24/7 access to Boston Scientific technical analysis and expertise, so you can provide your patients faster, more efficient treatment.
This innovative system allows you to quickly and conveniently triage patients during their regularly scheduled follow-up appointments, at visits to heart failure clinics, pre- and post-surgery, and during emergency room visits. The system also collects the most recently stored episodes from the last 72 hours or from the last 6 months.
With the LATITUDE Consult System, you can receive technical review and documentation of the implanted device data for use in the patient’s clinical evaluation—all without needing to wait for a Boston Scientific representative or programmer.
If immediate attention is required and the clinician has a programmer equipped with the Heart Connect™ System, he or she can use it to allow a remote clinician and/or Boston Scientific representative to view the programmer screen.
