Enhanced Automatic Mode Switch(2) (AMS) - helps mitigate symptoms associated with prolonged ventricular pacing in response to atrial tachyarrhythmias by switching from a tracking (where the ventricular paced rate follows the sensed atrial rate) to a non-tracking mode (where the ventricular rate paces independent of the atrial rate); enhancements to the algorithm allow for programmable cross-sensor mode switching, which allows the device to go from a rate-responsive mode to a non-rate-responsive mode (or vice-versa) during the mode switch.
