As the number of patients and use of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices have increased, anesthesiologists must understand the different types of implanted devices and their management during the perioperative period. Caring for these patients requires knowledge of the standard nomenclature used to describe device function, the role of a magnet, and the differential responses a magnet can cause based on the device type.
