Clinic Overview

The Cardiac Implantable Electrical Device (CIED) Clinic is a specialized outpatient clinic designed for the care of patients with implanted rhythm-management devices. We provide full support services for people with pacemakers, ICDs, implanted loop recorders (ILR).

Our goal at the clinic is to:

  • Look after aspects of patients’ health associated with their device.
  • Provide regular follow-up care to make sure pacemakers and ICDs are working properly, and to watch for any other heart-related problems.
  • Provide patient and family education about their device.

The clinic is staffed by doctors and nurses who specialize in the treatment and care of patients who have an implantable rhythm device. We work together with your family doctor and cardiologist. We do not provide any non-device-related cardiology assessments; nor do we address any general cardiac issues. Appointments are available by referral only.

Referring physicians should consult the Alberta Referral Directory

The Cardiac Implantable Electrical Device Clinic provides regular assessments of your permanent pacemaker. The nurses at the CIED clinic will check your pacemaker at each appointment and send a report of this assessment to your family physician and cardiologist. 

Our clinic is practicing all COVID-19 public health guidelines set forth by Alberta Health Services (AHS). This includes in-clinic social distancing and limiting the number of designated family/support persons who can accompany you. We also require you to wear a face mask/covering when entering our clinic. If you have any questions, please contact our clinic, or visit the AHS website to learn more about COVID-19 guidelines. 

If possible, we recommend that you stay in your vehicle until a few minutes before your appointment time to reduce time in the waiting room. If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 infection (cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose), please do not come to the clinic.
