VAD outpatient clinic
After discharge, our patients with a ventricular assist device (VAD) come to the outpatient clinic several times for check-ups. During the first three to four weeks, this is done once a week, then at longer intervals.
The following parameters are recorded during outpatient care:
- Physical examination, especially Driveline, PM pocket, sternotomy scar, etc.
- Resting ECG
- Defibrillator check
- Laboratory test
The unit can be contacted during the day via the outpatient clinic number. The on-call service can be contacted outside regular service hours.
