Smallest Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator

offers advanced pacing and defibrillation

Smallest Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator. At only 29cc, Ovatio DR is being marketed as the world's smallest dual-chamber (DR) implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). For ICD patients having a very small device implanted is important both for comfort and cosmetic reasons. Physiologically shaped, this new ICD also offers 34 joules of maximum output, which may prove useful for patients with high defibrillation thresholds that require more energy to terminate life-threatening arrhythmias. The device incorporates two special technologies, namely AAIsafeR and PARAD+. The AAIsafeR pacing mode limits unnecessary pacing in the right ventricle, which studies suggest may increase the risk of heart failure and atrial fibrillation. With PARAD+, an enhanced and fast discrimination of ventricular tachyarrhythmia, the ICD is also capable of detecting and treating the full spectrum of ventricular tachyarrhythmias, i.e. slow (100 beats per minute) and fast (up to 255 beats per minute), through painless anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP). ATP is delivered as first-line therapy, thus sparing the patients unnecessary defibrillation shocks that could decrease the device's longevity. The ICDs are supported by new programming software that is now ten times faster than previous versions. Smallest Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator
