BACKGROUND The development of a totally subcutaneous implantable defibrillator (S-ICD) system requires a new approach for arrhythmia detection. To evaluate arrhythmia discrimination of one such… (More)
INTRODUCTION The subcutaneous ICD system (S-ICD) has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for patients at risk for sudden cardiac death. This device reliably detects ventricular… (More)
AIMS The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) and leadless pacemaker (LP) are evolving technologies that do not require intracardiac leads. However, interactions between these… (More)
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) detect ventricular arrhythmias responsible for causing sudden cardiac arrest and then deliver a high-voltage defibrillation shock to terminate the… (More)
INTRODUCTION This study reports the experimental process leading to development of an automatic totally subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (SICD) system engineered for human use. … (More)
The recent advent of an entirely subcutaneous implantable defibrillator (ICD) has provided a relevant contribution to the debate concerning the use of ICD therapy in patients at high risk for death.… (More)
Introduction: Efforts to deliver completely extracardiac pacing/defibrillation into the anterior mediastinum over the cardiac notch, have been previously described. These efforts aim to eliminate c...
Cette invention concerne des procedes, des systemes et des dispositifs destines a l’analyse de signaux dans un dispositif de surveillance et de regulation de l’activite cardiaque implante, tel qu’un… (More)
Introduction: A novel extracardiac lead delivery method may offer the potential to provide pacing and defibrillation therapy while eliminating complications from vascular access and endocardial (le...
An implantable cardiac stimulation (ICS, Implantable Cardiac Stimulus System) comprising a receptacle (42) sealed housing a set of operational electrical and electronic circuitry for the ICS system,… (More)
