A more efficient pacing
strategy is to think of the race in two halves, and allow yourself to slow by two to three percent during the second half.
The new exhibit allows visitors to watch the bears swimming in a 130,000 gallon pool and playing - or pacing
- on 5,500 square feet of beach.
All patients in the trial will receive an EnRhythm MRI SureScan pacing
system, and approximately half of the participants will receive MRI scans; the trial's first MRI scans will occur approximately two to three months after device implant.
The Adapta pacemaker offers the Medtronic-exclusive pacing
mode called MVP(TM) or Managed Ventricular Pacing
, which enables the device to be programmed to deliver pacing
pulses to the heart's lower right chamber (ventricle) only when necessary.
Several clinical studies have demonstrated that unnecessary right ventricular pacing
from cardiac implantable devices significantly increases the risk of patients developing heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF).
A statistically significant improvement in cardiac function with biventricular pacing

as measured by a six-minute walk test.
The SelectSecure pacing
lead (Model 3830) is the world's thinnest bipolar lead.
The clinical study is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter trial, involving up to 120 patients at 10 sites, to evaluate the safety and clinical performance of the Adapta pacing
Clinical studies have shown that unnecessary pacing
in the right ventricle can increase the risk for heart failure and atrial fibrillation.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its new AAIsafeR(TM) 2 pacing
The Stratos LV received CE mark in Europe in August, 2002, and the Protos DR/CLS received FDA approval for conventional pacing
indications in December, 2002.
Guidant Corporation (NYSE:GDT) today announced that it has completed enrollment in a major clinical trial to study unnecessary pacing
in heart failure patients.
