Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population

Patients implanted with a new Guidant ICD/ CRT-D: Indication for CRT-D and ICD with history of atrial fibrillation. Patients with new implants will not be enrolled until their three month follow up visit in the pacemaker clinic.

Patients currenlty implanted with a Guidant ICD/ CRT-D: More than 20% atrial fibrillation burden as recorded by defibrillator follow up report or with history of atrial fibrillation.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Be between 18-85 years old
  • Be willing and able to give informed consent
  • Patient currently has a CRT-D or ICD with > 20% atrial fibrillation burden as recorded by defibrillator follow up report or a history of atrial fibrillation prior to implant.
  • Patient has the ability to complete a Six minute walk test with the only limiting factors to be fatigue or shortness of breath.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Expected mortality less than 6 months due to non-cardiac causes.
  • Pregnant women.
  • Creatinine greater than or equal to 2.5 mg/dl.
  • Anemia (HCT less than 30)
  • COPD causing significant dyspnea
  • Orthopedic problems affecting 6 minute walk.
