Regarding its diagnostic abilities, the AIMD allows a doctor to continuously observe specific actions of the patient’s body for an extended time. This provides more information than a single reading that would otherwise be obtained when the patient visits the office. Certain conditions, such as those involving the heart, might not always be present, and the AIMD allows the doctor to detect them when they occur.
Other AIMDs offer long-term therapy, with the pacemaker as one example. This device enables the heart to keep a regular rhythm, making it a life-saving device that significantly impacts the lives of those who receive it.
