BERNSTEIN, A.D., et al.: The Revised NASPE/BPEG Generic Code for Antibradycardia, Adaptive‐Rate, and Multisite Pacing. In light of evolving pacemaker technology and increasing interest in multisite pacing, the Committee on the Development of Position Statements (CDPS) of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE) created an ad hoc Pacemaker Mode Code Task Force in April 2001 under the chairmanship of David L. Hayes, MD, for the purpose of bringing the NASPE/British… Expand
A simple new code for multisite cardiac pacing and implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
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
Multisite cardiac pacing. A code proposal revisited
A new code for multisite pacing based on the standard pacemaker code using a split format to describe the anatomic chamber or chambers being paced and the triggered response of the pacemaker to sensed signals is proposed. Expand
Contemporary Pacemaker and Defibrillator Device Therapy: Challenges Confronting the General Cardiologist
The goals of the present review are to highlight the fundamental areas of knowledge essential for follow-up, to provide an update on newer applications of device therapy, and to address some of the more common challenges and clinical scenarios encountered by the general cardiologist. Expand
A simple new code for multisite cardiac pacing and implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
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
Implantable Cardiac Pulse Generators: Pacemakers and Cardioverter-Defibrillators
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
Implications of pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators in urological practice.
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
Pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators--general and anesthetic considerations.
When a device patient undergoes any procedure (with or without anesthesia), special precautions have to be observed including a focused history/physical examination, interrogation of pacemaker before and after the procedure, emergency drugs/temporary pacing and defibrillation, reprogramming ofpacemaker and disabling certain pacemaker functions if required.

A Importância da Programação do PVARP (Período Refratário Atrial Pós-Evento Ventricular) Artigo de Revisão
A programacao adequada do periodo refratario atrial pos-evento ventricular (PVARP), ao impedir a sensibilidade do canal atrial nesse intervalo de tempo, evita o reinicio do intervalo atrioventricular (IAV) e o marcapasso deflagraria uma nova estimulacao ventricular. Expand
Pacemaker Emergencies in the ER
This chapter will give the emergency room physician a quick review of the complications, clinical diagnostic keys, high-clinical suspicion signs, and possible treatments of the most common pacemaker complications. Expand
Behandlung bradykarder Rhythmusstörungen - wer benötigt einen Herzschrittmacher?
Cardiac pacing for recurrent unpredictable neurocardiogenic syncope due to a cardioinhibitory reflex should be considered in certain circumstances and pacing in this condition is only indicated in the presence of bradycardia-related symptoms. Expand


A new generic code, patterned after and compatible with the NASPE/BPEG Generic Pacemaker Code (NBG Code), intended for describing the capabilities and operation of implanted cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) in conversation, record keeping, and device labeling. Expand
The NASPE * /BPEG ** Generic Pacemaker Code for Antibradyarrhythmia and Adaptive‐Rate Pacing and Antitachyarrhythmia Devices
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. Expand
The NASPE/BPEG Codes: Use, Misuse, and Evolution
The authors believe that unilateral dissemination of idiosyncratic code usage that ignores these definitions is unhelpful because it invites misunderstanding and may fail to provide accurate and useful information. Expand
Design and Implementation of the Dual Site Atrial Pacing to Prevent Atrial Fibrillation (DAPPAF) Clinical Trial
The Dual Site Atrial Pacing to Prevent Atrial Fibrillation (DAPPAF) study compares dual site, single site and support pacing modalities in the prevention of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients withExpand
Long‐Term Effects of Biatrial Synchronous Pacing to Prevent Drug‐Refractory Atrial Tachyarrhythmia: A Nine‐Year Experience
This work has shown that atrial resynchronization by multisite atrial pacing may coutribute to prevention of recurrences in patients with drug‐refractory atrial tachyarrbythmias and significant intra‐atrial conduction delay. Expand
Letter to the Editor
The authors should be complimented for bringing to the attention of those working with spinal cord injury patients the unusual feature of self-biting of fingers in tetraplegic patients (Dahlin exExpand
