Dear Patient,
Boston Scientific has recently sent new information to your doctor about your heart
Information for patients
An optional feature within certain AUTOGENTM defibrillator models has occasionally
not performed as expected. If this feature has been turned ON in your device, your
doctor can turn it OFF during your next clinic visit. Your device will continue to function
properly without this feature activated.
What should you do?
Please go to all scheduled clinic visits as requested by your doctor. You may wish to
talk with your doctor about this letter during your next visit. Your own doctor knows
best how this information relates specifically to you.
