Relationship between atrioventricular delay and oxygen consumption in patients with sick sinus syndrome: relevance to rate responsive pacing.

Abstract

To develop a dromotropic-controlled rate adaptive algorithm for patients with sick sinus syndrome (SSS) and intact AV conduction, 14 pace-maker patients with SSS underwent cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX). During exercise, the pace-maker was programmed in an AAT mode without rate adaptation, whereby 3 patients developed supraventricular arrhythmia and… (More)
