Cameron Health: Is This The Cure For An Ailing ICD Market?

Ten years ago, the ICD market was booming, now it's not, despite studies that show the device is underutilized. The increasing complexity of CRM devices, and in particular ICDs, has brought a host of problems - including major product recalls that in turn have created caution on the part of patients - and has done little to grow the market beyond single digits in recent years. Cameron Health believes it has the answer for a truly disruptive ICD with a contrarian twist: a simpler device that addresses major problems such as lead failures, inappropriate shocks, and the burdens of complexity.
