Cardiac Rhythm Management
A Product Advisory is issued proactively to inform healthcare professionals about any anomalies that we’ve identified in our devices that might pose a risk to patient safety. The advisories provide you with guidance on recommended or necessary actions in order to mitigate any risks and improve patient outcomes and safety. When a product advisory is issued, BIOTRONIK works to inform all relevant physicians involved in the care of potentially affected patients.
