This study will evaluate the effect of an iodine impregnated barrier dressing on device pocket swab culture positivity. Minimizing contamination during the implant procedure can be one of the potential improvements to prevent CIED infections. Patients requiring a lead change, battery change or device upgrade will be eligible. This is a randomized, blinded study where participants will be randomized to having the barrier dressing applied before any incision is made (experimental group) or applying the dressing just prior to collecting the culture swab (control group). Patients and the staff taking the culture swab at the end of the procedure are blinded as to which group the participant is randomized to.
