Remote Monitoring with Cardiac Implantable Electronic Device to follow-up Pharmacodynamic Effects of Sacubitril/Valsartan Treatment: A Case Report

Cardiac implantable electronic devices include remote monitoring tools intended to guide heart failure management. These tools allow to monitor some physiologic functions such as intrathoracic impedance (ITI), patient activity (PA), and heart rate variability (HRV). Sacubitril/Valsartan is recommended by current guidelines as foundational therapy for patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. However, effects of Sacubitril/Valsartan treatment on these physiologic parameters remains unclear. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case objectively documenting improvements in intrathoracic impedance, patient activity, and heart rate variability, values with sacubitril/valsartan treatment.
