Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator

Quality Outcomes and Simplifying Long-term Patient Management

The EMBLEM S-ICD System has several clinical advantages that help to drive improved patient outcomes including:

Effective defibrillation without transvenous leads

Quality of Life Improvements – Similar to TV-ICDs1

To understand the S-ICD System from a patient perspective, a new sub-study of the EFFORTLESS registry compared the quality of life (QoL) between patients implanted with the S-ICD System and those with TV-ICDs.
