Reducing Unnecessary Pacing with MVP™
The EnRhythm™ Pacing System is the first pacemaker to include Managed Ventricular Pacing (MVP™) Mode. MVP allows the heart to beat on its own as often as possible, promoting the heart’s natural function. It provides the opportunity for the heart to contract naturally while delivering pacing therapy only when needed. This may reduce unnecessary electrical impulses in the right ventricle, or lower heart chamber. Recent clinical studies have suggested that reducing this unnecessary pacing stimulation may reduce a patient’s risk of developing heart failure and atrial fibrillation.
Advanced Tools to Help Diagnose and Monitor
EnRhythm™ provides comprehensive information to help your doctor assess or manage additional types of heart rhythm problems. Cardiac Compass® is a report that graphically displays over a year’s worth of your clinical progress. This may assist your doctor in making decisions about different therapies and medications that are right for you.
Reactive ATP™ Restores Normal Heart Rhythm
Anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP) is designed to quickly and painlessly terminate atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATs), abnormally fast rhythm in the heart's upper chamber. The atrial Reactive ATP feature in the EnRhythm pacemaker continually searches for opportunities to restore a patient’s normal heart rhythm during fast heart rhythm episodes in the atrium. Reactive ATP constantly monitors and responds to changes in the rate or regularity of AT episodes and then delivers the appropriate atrial ATP therapies.
