Pacemaker Club: Manually Stimulating/vibrating Pacer To Increase Heart Rate During Exercise

Pacemaker Club: Manually Stimulating/vibrating Pacer To Increase Heart Rate During Exercise

manually stimulating/vibrating pacer to increase heart rate during exercise manually stimulating/vibrating pacer to increase heart rate during exercise i've found that by taping a vibrator to my chest close to the accelerometer location of my pacer (Medtronic Advisa - A2DR01) i can increase my heart rate during exercises that don't create enough physical movement to be detected by my device's accelerometer. The vibrator is small - bullettype that is remote controlled - i think by bluetooth. So, this solves a big problem for me when engaging in vigorous exercise, like bicycling, or elliptical machine when I'm on a flatter incline. As my pacer doesn't know I'm exercising and my heart rate stays low when i need it to go a bit higher. Of course it would be easier if I could just program the device to stay at a high rate when I'm exercising, but I'm not aware of a way to do this other than perhaps dating a medtronic technician that would let me use their programmer :) So here is the obvious question. I'm interested in what the community thinks the risks are for this practice. Continue reading >>

Medtronic Sensor | Cardiocases

Medtronic Sensor | Cardiocases

The rate response of Medtronic pacemakers includes a) an activity sensor that measures the patientsmotion, b) a rate calculation tool that converts the level of physical activity to a pacing rate, and c)an optimization function of the rates histogram to automatically adjust the rate response parametersover time and the acceleration and deceleration functions in order to smooth the pacing rate. Thealgorithm offers a dual slope rate response, which can be automatic or manual. The activity sensor is an accelerometer embedded in the device, which detects the patients bodymotion. Since the activity sensed varies among patients, the motion sensitivity can be adjusted byreprogramming the activity threshold parameter. By lowering the threshold, the pacing rate ismodulated by less prominent motion, whereas an increase in threshold requires more marked bodymotion to modulate the pacing rate. If the threshold is increased, the body movements must begreater to have an effect on the pacing rate. The activity counter used to calculate the sensor rate isregulated by the rate and amplitude of the accelerometer signal. The pacing rate is determined by the patients level of physical activity and by the rate responseparameters. At rest, for example when the patient is sitting, the pacing rate is near the backup rate.During increasing activity, for example when the patient is walking, the pacing rate increases. The main advantages of accelerometers are their simplicity, reliability, low energy consumption, useof standard leads, high sensitivity at the onset of exercise, and high correlation between physicalperformance and rate acceleration, observed under various conditions, including walk and daily lifeactivity. Furthermore, the response is more physiologic than with a piezoelectric sens Continue reading >>

Therapyguide Feature

Therapyguide Feature

TherapyGuideoffers a simple, clinically focused method for a clinician to obtain suggested parameter values. At implant or an early follow-up appointment, the clinician enters information about the patient's clinical conditions. Based on those inputs the programmer suggests parameter values. The suggestions are based on clinical studies, literature, current practice, and the consensus of physicians. This feature can be found in some Medtronic Pacemaker, ICD, CRT-P, and CRT-D devices. Please go to manuals.medtronic.com or consult with your local Medtronic representative regarding device models available in your geography. From the TherapyGuide window, the clinician can perform the following functions: Select the clinical conditions that describe the patient. Get suggestions that TherapyGuide makes pending in the device memory. The program button must be selected to store the parameters into the device. View a Rationale window, and learn what parameter settings are suggested by specific clinical conditions. The categories for the clinical conditions selected are: To use TherapyGuide, go to Params -> TherapyGuide. TherapyGuide provides tailored, clinically oriented programming suggestions using physician-selected parameters. TherapyGuide does not replace the physicians expert judgment. The physicians knowledge of the patients medical condition goes beyond the set of inputs presented to TherapyGuide. The physician is free to accept, reject, or modify any of the suggested parameter values. The following table shows an example of how programming suggestions are determined by combinations of clinical conditions. The programmable features (and certain clinical conditions) shown in the table do not apply to all device models. To learn which of the following features apply, refe Continue reading >>

Neurostimulation For Chronic Pain Faqs - Medtronic Neuromodulation

Neurostimulation For Chronic Pain Faqs - Medtronic Neuromodulation

What is neurostimulation and how does it work? Neurostimulation is a proven, effective, reversible treatment alternative when other pain treatments provide unsatisfactory relief. Results may vary from patient to patient. Neurostimulation uses a small system, surgically placed under the skin, to send mild electrical impulses to the spinal cord or to a peripheral nerve via a special medical wire. These impulses block the pain signals from reaching the brain. Because neurostimulation works in the area where pain signals travel, its electrical impulses (which are felt as tingling) can be directed to cover the specific sites where you are feeling pain. Neurostimulation can decrease the need for pain medications. Will I hear or feel the neurostimulation system inside me, and will people notice it? The neurostimulator is usually implanted in the lower abdomen or buttock, where it is most comfortable and least visible. The device does not make any noise. It may be felt as a small bulge under your skin but it does not normally show through your clothes. The device ranges from 61 millimetres (mm) by 76 mm, to 56 mm by 61 mm or 49 mm by 65mm, depending on which system you receive. It is 15 mm to 10.16mm thick and weighs 42 grams (g) to 83 g. If your doctor recommends a radio-frequency system, the transmitter will be visible and is usually worn on the belt like a pager. In addition, an antenna must be placed on your skin for the system to work. Will I be able to adjust my neurostimulation system? The totally implantable system has a patient programmer (similar to a computer mouse) that allows you to adjust the stimulation produced by the neurostimulation system. In the external system, a transmitter similar to a pager is used to adjust the system. This transmitter, with an antenna Continue reading >>

Dual Chamber, Multi-mode External Pacemaker - Medtronic, Inc.

Dual Chamber, Multi-mode External Pacemaker - Medtronic, Inc.

Dual chamber, multi-mode external pacemaker One embodiment of the present invention is a mode switching method and apparatus for an external, dual chamber cardiac pacemaker having multiple single chamber and dual chamber primary pacing modes and user adjustable atrial and ventricular sensitivities. The dual chamber demand pacing mode, e.ga. the DDD or DDI mode, is in effect as long as the atrial and ventricular pace pulse amplitudes are set by the user within an operative range. The pacing mode is switched to a single chamber demand mode when one of the atrial and ventricular pace pulse energies is set to an inoperative setting which preferably is a no output setting. If the atrial pace pulse amplitude is set to no output, then the mode is switched to a single chamber demand mode with ventricular sensing and pacing, preferably the VVI mode. If the ventricular pace pulse amplitude is set to no output, then the mode is switched to a single chamber mode with atrial sensing and pacing, preferably the AAI mode. In the implementation of the invention, the setting of atrial or ventricular pace pulse amplitude to the OFF position is detected, and the corresponding atrial or ventricular sense amplifier is effectively rendered inoperative, resulting in the mode switch. The mode switch back to the dual chamber demand pacing mode is effected by setting the atrial or ventricular pace pulse amplitude to any level other than the no output position. Preferably, the mode switch is back to the DDD mode, even if the preceding mode switch was from the DDI mode.

You can manage this and all other alerts in My Account Although I agree that the case Etomidate-induced Pacemaker-mediated Ventricular Tachycardia 1 could represent an important contribution to our literature, I am concerned that the data presented in this article cannot justify the conclusion that myoclonus from the etomidate was actually responsible for this pacemaker-driven tachycardia (this is not actually an arrhythmia). Therefore, this article might be cited by future practitioners when, in fact, etomidate likely made little or no contribution to the ventricular pacing shown at 140 beats/min. The rate-responsive mechanism in this Medtronic Prodigy pacemaker (St. Paul, MN) is a piezo crystal attached to the case of the pacemaker. 2 It is activated by case deformation (pressing on the case). The rate-responsive algorithm has a number of programmable settings that determine how the pacemaker will change the pacing rate (called activity-indicated rate) due to stimulation of this crystal. These settings include the following (not specified in the article): lowe Continue reading >>
