distinguish between ventricular and non- ventricular rhythm disorders.
We have known for years that ICDs can be successfully used to treat ventricular fibrillation in the relatively few patients with symptomatic ventricular rhythms.
In atrial fibrillation, the atria (upper chambers of the heart) quiver continuously, causing an irregular, rapid rate in the ventricles (lower chambers of the heart); in atrial flutter, the atrial rate is very rapid, however, both atrial and ventricular rhythms usually are regular.
PR Logic, designed to accurately discriminate between fast ventricular rhythms that are immediately life-threatening from fast atrial arrhythmias that are not, is the only technology that combines atrial and ventricular pattern recognition with rate information to analyze heart rhythm patterns, much as a physician does when reviewing an electrocardiogram.
The GEM II DR is the latest in the GEM family of devices that incorporates PR Logic(TM), an innovative dual chamber detection algorithm designed to discriminate between fast ventricular rhythms that are life-threatening and fast atrial arrhythmias that are not.
