A new generic code, patterned after and compatible with the NASPE/BPEG Generic Pacemaker Code (NBG Code) was adopted by the NASPE Board of Trustees on January 23. 1993. It was developed by the NASPE Mode Code Committee, including members of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE) and the British Pacing and Electrophysiology Croup (BPEC). It is abbreviated as the NBD (for NASPE/BPEC Defibrillator) Code. It is intended for describing the capabilities and operation of… Expand
The NASPE * /BPEG ** Pacemaker‐Lead Code (NBL Code)
TLDR
A generic code for pacemaker leads, to he known as the NASPE/BPEG Pacemaker-Lead Code (NBL Code), was subsequently approved by the British Pacing and Electrophysiology Croup. Expand
A simple new code for multisite cardiac pacing and implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
TLDR
The pacemaker code used until three years ago was introduced in 1987 by the Mode Code Committee of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE), and retains all the characteristics of the 1974 ICHD Code and some of those of the later five-position codes. Expand
Implantable Cardiac Pulse Generators: Pacemakers and Cardioverter-Defibrillators
TLDR
The CIED should be replaced near its elective replacement period in a patient scheduled to undergo either a major surgical procedure or a surgical procedure where monopolar electrosurgery will be used within 25 cm of the generator. Expand
The patient with a cardiac pacemaker or implanted defibrillator and management during anaesthesia

  • Current opinion in anaesthesiology
  • 2007
TLDR
Evidence suggests that postoperative re-interrogation of any cardiac generator is warranted if an operative event includes the use of monopolar electrosurgery (‘Bovie’) or significant fluid or blood component administration. Expand
Intrathoracic Gadgets In The New Millennium: Primer On Pacemakers And Cardioverter-defibrillators
TLDR
This primer attempts to provide basic information about implantable pulse generators and the care of the patient with these intrathoracic gadgets. Expand
A simple new code for multisite cardiac pacing and implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
TLDR
For the first time, in1974 the Inter-Society Commission for HeartDisease (ICHD) proposed a three-position “ge-neric” or “conventional” pacemaker code: the first letter corresponded to chamber paced, thesecond letter to chamber sensed and the thirdletter to mode of response. Expand
The patient with a pacemaker or related device

  • Canadian journal of anaesthesia = Journal canadien d'anesthesie
  • 1996
TLDR
Methods for the provision of alternate emergency pacing should be available when dealing with patients at risk of bradyarrhythmias or pacemaker failure in the operating room, and the anaesthetist should have a safe, practical plan of action. Expand
Implications of pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators in urological practice.
TLDR
Clear guidelines are essential given the rapid advances in technology to enhance patient safety and patients can undergo extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, radiotherapy and positron emission tomography as long as the device is not in the path. Expand
Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices
Most of the temporary cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are implanted percutaneously; however, epicardial systems are now implanted in a small number of the patients. Novel leadlessExpand
Low-energy transvenous cardioversion defibrillation of atrial tachyarrhythmias in the canine: an assessment of electrode configurations and monophasic pulse sequencing.
TLDR
The feasibility of intracavitary low-energy shocks delivered via transvenously positioned electrodes for termination of induced atrial tachyarrhythmias in canine models is examined and further refinement of energy delivery is essential for the implantable automatic atrial cardioverter defibrillator concept to become clinically accepted.

The NASPE * /BPEG ** Generic Pacemaker Code for Antibradyarrhythmia and Adaptive‐Rate Pacing and Antitachyarrhythmia Devices
TLDR
A new generic pacemaker code, derived from and compatible with the Revised ICHD Code, was developed to permit extension of the generic‐code concept to pacemakers whose escape rate is continuously controlled by monitoring some physiologic variable, rather than determined by fixed escape intervals measured from stimuli or sensed depolarizations.
