Implanted Cardiac Devices

The process for notifying the UWHC Heart and Vascular Care Pacemaker nurses regarding ICD/Pacer patients has changed from the older paper/fax form to a electronic order.

Place an order encounter and enter either "ICD" or "Pacemaker" and select "Preop Device...." This order will automatically come to the Pacemaker Nurse Inbasket. Placing the order gives time to prepare and obtain the patients device information and not delay surgery start time (don't sign and hold order or put in as an inpatient order- this order needs to be released immediately to come to the proper InBasket).
