HURTADO NAZAL, Claudia et al. Perioperative care in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.1, pp.77-83. ISSN 0718-4026.

With the increased number of patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED), which include pacemakers and/or implantable cardioverter- defibrillators, the perioperative management of those patients who will be undergoing surgery requires that surgical team to become familiar with these devices and their implications, in order to reduce the adverse outcomes. Current guidelines recommend a multidisciplinary approach of these patients. However, when these conditions are not feasible, both surgical and anesthesia team should be able to provide a safe and effective perioperative environment. This management should be individualized for each patient, type of device and surgical procedure; therefore a single recommendation is not appropriate for all cases. The main recommendations for the perioperative management of patients with pacemakers and/or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are described in this review.

Palabras clave : Cardiac implantable devices; Surgery; Perioperative care; Pacemaker; Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.
