Hierarchy of ventricular pacemakers. (1/1706)

To characterize the pattern of pacemaker dominance in the ventricular specialized conduction system (VSCS), escape ventricular pacemakers were localized and quantified in vivo and in virto, in normal hearts and in hearts 24 hours after myocardial infarction. Excape pacemaker foci were localized in vivo during vagally induced atrial arrest by means of electrograms recorded from the His bundle and proximal bundle branches and standard electrocardiographic limb leads. The VSCS was isolated using a modified Elizari preparation or preparations of each bundle branch. Peacemakers were located by extra- and intracellular recordings. Escape pacemaker foci in vivo were always in the proximal conduction system, usually the left bundle branch. The rate was 43+/-11 (mean+/-SD) beats/min. After beta-adrenergic blockade, the mean rate fell to 31+/-10 beats/min, but there were no shifts in pacemaker location. In the infarcted hearts, pacemakers were located in the peripheral left bundle branch. The mean rate was 146+/-20 beats/min. In isolated normal preparations, the dominant pacemakers usually were in the His bundle, firing at a mean rate of 43+/-10 beats/min. The rates of pacemakers diminished with distal progression. In infarcted hearts, the pacemakers invariably were in the infarct zone. The mean firing rates were not influenced by beta-adrenergic blockade. The results indicate that the dominant pacemakers are normally in the very proximal VSCS, but after myocardial infarction pacemaker dominance is shifted into the infarct. Distribution of pacemaker dominance is independent of sympathetic influence.  (+info)

Electrophysiological effects of mexiletine in man. (2/1706)

The electrophysiological effects of intravenous mexiletine in a dose of 200 to 250 mg given over 5 minutes, followed by continuous infusion of 60 to 90 mg per hour, were studied in 5 patients with normal conduction and in 20 patients with a variety of disturbances of impulse formation and conduction, by means of His bundle electrography, atrial pacing, and the extrastimulus method. In all but 2 patients the plasma level was above the lower therapeutic limit. Mexiletine had no consistent effects on sinus frequency and atrial refractoriness. The sinoatrial recovery time changed inconsistently in both directions; however, of the 5 patients in whom an increase was evident, 3 had sinus node dysfunction. In most patients mexiletine increased the AV nodal conduction time at paced atrial rates and shifted the Wenckebach point to a lower atrial rate. The effective refractory period of the AV node was not consistently influenced, while the functional refractory period increased in 12 out of 14 patients. The HV intervals increased by a mean of 11 ms in 8 patients and were unchanged in 17. Both the relative and effective refractory period of the His-Purkinje system increased after mexiletine. Non-cardiac side effects occurred in 7 out of 25 patients, and cardiac side effects, including one serious, in 2. The results indicate that mexiletine shares some electrophysiological properties with procainamide and quinidine, when given to patients with conduction defects, and that the drug should not be used in patients with pre-existing impairment of impulse formation or conduction. It has additional effects on AV nodal conduction which may be of value in the treatment of re-entrant tachycardias involving the AV node.  (+info)

Chronic His bundle block. Clinical, electrocardiographic, electrophysiological, and follow-up studies on 16 patients. (3/1706)

This report describes 16 patients with block within the His bundle seen over a period of 55 months. Ten were women and 6 men, with an average age of 76 years, range, 42 to 98 years. All patients had His bundle recordings showing split His bundle potentials (H and H) (13 patients) or narrow QRS with block distal to the His bundle potential (3 patients). Of the 16 patients, 10 had complete heart block, 4 second degree AV block (2 patients with Mobitz type II, and 2 with 2:1), and 2 first degree AV block. Ten patients had a narrow QRS in the conducted beats or escape rhythms. Intravenous atropine (1 to 2 mg) had a variable effect on AV conduction and the rate of the escape rhythm. Twelve patients have had a permanent pacemaker implanted. During the follow-up period, 10 patients died 1 to 31 months from the time of initial examination. The remaining 6 patients (5 with pacemaker) are alive 3 to 58 months later.  (+info)

Fatal outcome arising from use of a sutureless "corkscrew" epicardial pacing electrode inserted into apex of left ventricle. (4/1706)

A 59-year-old man is described in whom the insertion of an epicardial sutureless "corkscrew" electrode resulted in fatal ventricular perforation. Fatal myocardial perforation can occur with this electrode and the apex of the left ventricle should never be used as the site of insertion. Necropsy also showed that the transvenous right ventricular electrode, inserted one year previously, had penetrated a tricuspid leaflet. This could have accounted for the ensuing pacing failure.  (+info)

Effects of varying pacemaker sites on left ventricular performance. (5/1706)

The hemodynamic effects of the site of the artificial cardiac stimulation were studied in 17 open chest dogs. The right atrium and five ventricular sites (the inflow and outflow tracts and apex of the right ventricle, apex and lateral wall of the left ventricle) were stimulated electronically at a given rate, ranging from 130 to 190 per min. When cardiac performance during ventricular pacing was compared with those during right atrial pacing, the former uniformly caused a diminution of cardiac output and systemic blood pressure, without reduction of left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. Ventricular function curves, in which left ventricular stroke work was related to left ventricular end-diastolic pressure, shifted downwards and to the right during ventricular pacing. Stimulation frequency did not alter these variables. It was considered that the left ventricular dysfunction in ventricular pacing resulted from the absence of atrial contribution to ventricular filling, mitral regurgitation present and asynchronous ventricular contraction. No significant difference of cardiac performance was demonstrated by changing the site of ventricular pacing, suggesting that the mode of ventricular depolarization itself was not relevant to a decrease in cardiac performance.  (+info)

Pacemaker lead infection: echocardiographic features, management, and outcome. (6/1706)

OBJECTIVE: To compare transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography (TTE, TOE) in patients with permanent pacemaker lead infection and to evaluate the safety of medical extraction in cases of large vegetations. METHODS: TTE and TOE were performed in 23 patients with definite pacemaker lead infection. Seventeen patients without previous infection served as a TOE reference for non-infected leads. RESULTS: TTE was positive in seven cases (30%) whereas with TOE three different types of vegetations attached to the leads were visualised in 21 of the 23 cases (91%). Of the 20 patients with vegetations and lead culture, 17 (85%) had bacteriologically active infection. Left sided valvar endocarditis was diagnosed in two patients. In the control group, strands were visualised by TOE in five patients, and vegetations in none. Medical extraction of vegetations >/= 10 mm was performed in 12 patients and was successful in nine (75%) without clinical pulmonary embolism. After 31.2 (19.1) months of follow up (mean (SD)), all patients except one were cured of infection; three died from other causes. CONCLUSIONS: Combined with bacteriological data, vegetations seen on TOE strongly suggest pacemaker lead infection. Normal TTE examinations do not exclude this diagnosis because of its poor sensitivity. Medical extraction of even large vegetations appeared to be safe.  (+info)

Pacemaker lead infection: report of three cases and review of the literature. (7/1706)

Pacemaker lead infection is a rare condition, most often occurring when intervention is needed after pacemaker implantation. Diagnosis is by blood cultures and confirmation by transoesophageal echocardiography; transthoracic echocardiography is often inadequate. A literature review indicated the microorganism most responsible for late lead infection is Staphylococcus epidermidis (which can grow on plastic material). A retrospective analysis of patient files from the authors' institution (1993-97) yielded three patients with proven pacemaker lead endocarditis. The diagnosis of pacemaker endocarditis was by transoesophageal echocardiography. The endocarditis appeared after a long period and in two of the three patients there was S epidermidis infection. Thoracotomy with removal of the infected system was performed because of the large dimensions of the vegetations. A new pacemaker was implanted: in one patient with endocardial leads, in the other two with epicardial leads. All three patients recovered well and follow up was uneventful for at least one year.  (+info)

Pacemaker lead extraction with the laser sheath: results of the pacing lead extraction with the excimer sheath (PLEXES) trial. (8/1706)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of pacemaker lead extraction with the excimer sheath in comparison to nonlaser lead extraction. BACKGROUND: Fibrotic attachments that develop between chronically implanted pacemaker leads and to the venous, valvular and cardiac structures are the major obstacles to safe and consistent lead extraction. Locking stylets and telescoping sheaths produce a technically demanding but effective technique of mechanically disrupting the fibrosis. However, ultraviolet excimer laser light dissolves instead of tearing the tissue attachments. METHODS: A randomized trial of lead extraction was conducted in 301 patients with 465 chronically implanted pacemaker leads. The laser group patients had the leads removed with identical tools as the nonlaser group with the exception that the inner telescoping sheath was replaced with the 12-F excimer laser sheath. Success for both groups was defined as complete lead removal with the randomized therapy without complications. RESULTS: Complete lead removal rate was 94% in the laser group and 64% in the nonlaser group (p = 0.001). Failed nonlaser extraction was completed with the laser tools 88% of the time. The mean time to achieve a successful lead extraction was significantly reduced for patients randomized to the laser tools, 10.1 +/- 11.5 min compared with 12.9 +/- 19.2 min for patients randomized to nonlaser techniques (p < 0.04). Potentially life-threatening complications occurred in none of the nonlaser and three of the laser patients, including one death (p = NS). CONCLUSIONS: Laser-assisted pacemaker lead extraction has significant clinical advantages over extraction without laser tools and is associated with significant risks.  (+info)

Aims We investigated the applicability of the Ventricular Capture Control (VCC) and Atrial Capture Control (ACC) algorithms for automatic management of cardiac stimulation featured by Biotronik pacemakers in a broad, unselected population of pacemaker recipients. Methods and results Ventricular Capture Control and Atrial Capture Control were programmed to work at a maximum adapted output voltage as 4.8 V in consecutive recipients of Biotronik pacemakers. Ambulatory threshold measurements were made 1 and 12 months after pacemaker implant/replacement in all possible pacing/sensing configurations, and were compared with manual measurements. Among 542 patients aged 80 (73-85) years, 382 had a pacemaker implant and 160 a pacemaker replacement. Ventricular Capture Control could work at long term in 97% of patients irrespectively of pacing indication, lead type, and lead service life, performance being superior with discordant pacing/sensing configurations. Atrial Capture Control could work in 93% of ...

A 77-year-old woman, with an otherwise good clinical status, was admitted to the hospital for syncope. An electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed second-degree atrioventricular block with good ventricular response. Twelve hours later, she experienced a second episode of syncope and the ECG revealed atrioventricular block with pauses ,3seconds; she underwent placement of a temporary pacemaker (TP) after cannulation of right subclavian vein and insertion of a lead that appeared to pace right ventricle. An X-ray showed the TP lead following the outer curvature of the heart to the apex (Figure A). An intracardiac ECG recorded complexes compatible with right ventricular epicardial pacing (Figure B). Intracardiac ECG is a recording of the patients electrical activity that uses TP leads (proximal V1 and distal V2). Thus, the patients own rhythm must be conserved and he or she must not be completely dependent on the pacemaker. Negative QRS deflection indicates an endocardial site; positive-negative ...
A heart pacemaker system has an electrode line with a proximal end which is introduced into a connector of the pacemaker housing, and a distal end having an electrode head attachable to the heart of a user. One or more of the distal or proximal ends of the electrode line, the connector, or a region of the electrode line are provided with a component consisting of shape-memory metal. These components have a first shape at temperatures different from body temperature, and assume a second shape when at body temperature. The shape-memory metal component, if disposed at the proximal end of the electrode line or at the connector, is arrnaged to provide a firm mechanical and electrical connection of the electrode line with the pacemaker housing upon the change of shape of the component. The shape-memory metal component, if disposed at the distal end, is arranged to assist in providing, either directly or indirectly, a reliable, mechanical and electrical connection of the electrode line to the heart upon the

A dual chamber pacemaker and method for ventricular rate smoothing during high rate episodes such as atrial fibrillation are provided. The pacemaker determines when there is a pathologically high atrial rate episode, such as by determining when atrial senses correspond to a spontaneous atrial rate above a predetermined upper rate limit. When such an episode is determined, the pacemaker determines a ventricular pacing escape interval, corresponding to a flywheel rate, the flywheel rate being set at the beginning of the episode to substantially equal the atrial rate just before the high rate episode. As long as the episode continues, the flywheel rate is incremented upward whenever a ventricular sense occurs, thereby following the average ventricular rate; whenever the flywheel escape interval times out and a ventricular pace is delivered, the flywheel rate is decremented. By allowing ventricular senses and pacing only after timeout of an escape interval which substantially equals average ventricular rate

BACKGROUND:Cardiac device infection (CDI) is a serious complication of cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) implantations. Many risk factors have been identified, but several are still uncertain. This study aimed to identify and evaluate the risk factors. Moreover, an infection control protocol (ICP) was carried out, and its efficacy in reducing CDIs was investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS:A total of 1259 patients who received permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantations were enrolled in this study in a 3-year period in a high-volume center and low-volume centers in the central area of Shaanxi Province, China. Follow-up data of all enrolled patients were collected. The risk factors for CDIs were identified and analyzed. The ICP was adopted in the low-volume centers. Data, including CDI rates, medical costs, and microbiology, were collected and compared. RESULTS:Male gender, diabetes, CKD, operation duration, PPM replacement, and low center volume were identified as the risk factors for CDIs.

Cardiovascular implantable electronic devices include pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators. Remote monitoring systems provide physicians with information from the implantable cardiac devices with little time delay.
The pacemaker system includes the pacemaker itself and wires that connect the pacemaker to the heart. The pacemaker unit is slightly larger than a mans wristwatch and contains a battery and computer circuits (Figure 1). The computer circuits perform the functions of monitoring the patients underlying heart rhythm and delivering an electrical signal to cause the heart to beat at the desired rate. Many pacemakers implanted today also may have rate responsiveness features that allow temporary pacing of the heart at faster rates during periods of exercise. Single-chamber pacemakers have only one wire connected to the heart and dual chamber pacemakers have wires to both the top and bottom chambers of the heart (Figure 2). Your cardiologist will recommend which type of pacemaker is needed. The pacemaker is implanted by a minor surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. The wires are placed through a blood vessel beneath the collar bone and positioned in the heart under x-ray. The wires are ...
Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the requirement for temporary and permanent pacemaker insertion and the incidence of the problems regarding the rhythm following heart transplantation with the bicaval or biatrial technique in the early postoperative period.Methods: Sixty-one patients underwent orthotopic heart transplantation between the dates of September 1989 and December 2008 in our clinics were included to the study. The study was designed as retrospective analysis, and all data were collected from hospital records. The transplantation was performed by using standard biatrial method in 28 of the patients, by using bicaval anastomosis method in 33 of the patients. Statistical analyses were performed using Chi-square, Fischers exact and Mann-Whitney U tests. Predictors of temporary and permanent pacemaker insertion were analyzed using logistic regression analysis.Results: In the biatrial group, the temporary pacemaker requirement (p|0.05), left bundle branch block (LBBB) (p|0.01) and
Temporary pacing was required in 28% (n=43) of the population, mainly those with CAVB, of whom 53% (n=23) required permanent pacemaker implantation.. Patients in whom bradyarrhythmia was resolved without need for pacemaker implantation were significantly more likely to present renal failure (24 vs. 5; p=0.001). Most patients who did not need pacemaker implantation had hypertension (Table 1).. Four patients died during hospitalization, three before pacemaker implantation and one after. No deaths were recorded in patients after discharge without pacemaker implantation.. Discussion. In this population, most patients required pacemaker implantation after iatrogenic drug discontinuation and/or correction of potentially reversible causes of bradyarrhythmias.. The proportion of patients with atrioventricular block who discontinue drug therapy and still need pacemaker implantation is unknown, as is the prognosis of these patients after hospital discharge without a pacemaker.2 There are few data on the ...

Abstract. Expanded indications for cardiac resynchronization therapy and the increasing incidence of cardiac implantable electronic device infection have led to an increased need for coronary sinus (CS) lead extraction. The CS presents unique anatomical obstacles to successful lead extraction. Training and facility requirements for CS lead extraction should mirror those for other leads. Here we review the indications, technique, and results of CS lead extraction. Published success rates and complications are similar to those reported for other leads, although multiple techniques may be required. Re-implantation options may be limited, which should be incorporated into pre-procedural decision making.. Link to abstract on PubMed. ...
The current study provides an updated contemporary epidemiology of the microbiology of CIED infections requiring extraction. It is the largest report to date on this topic and used multiple sources for microorganism cultures including lead or lead material, blood, pocket tissue, and pocket swab cultures. There were multiple observations with direct implications for clinical practice and patient management.. This topic is becoming increasingly relevant in clinical practice due to an increase in the number of CIED implants but, most important, due to increase in CIED infections (2,3). In fact, the longevity of patients with cardiac disease has increased and the number of system revisions or upgrades that a patient would require in a lifetime will increase in parallel. The risk of a CIED infection, a time-dependent variable, would likely follow a similar trend and the rates of CIED infections have indeed shown a disproportionate trend to increasing CIED implants (2,3). CIED infections carry not ...

Several studies have identified characteristics associated with CIED infections. In a single-center case-control study,18 case subjects were more likely to have diabetes mellitus and heart failure and to have undergone generator replacement; renal dysfunction (glomerular filtration rate ,60 mL · min−1 · 1.72 m−2) had the strongest (odds ratio [OR] 4.8) association with CIED infection. Renal dysfunction was also associated with risk of CIED infection in a more recent nested case-control investigation.19 In addition, Lekkerkerker et al19 identified oral anticoagulant use as an associated risk factor for infection. In another single-center case-control study, 29 patients with PPM infection were included, and long-term corticosteroid use (OR=13.9) and the presence of more than 2 pacing leads (OR=5.41) were identified as independent correlates of device infection.20. In addition to patient factors, procedural characteristics may also play an important role in the development of CIED infection. ...
Use of anti-programmed cell death-1 (anti-PD-1) has been successful in treating many types of cancers. Despite its promising efficacy, immune-related adverse events are still a major concern. Immune-related cardiotoxicity, which is rare but fatal, has recently become a focus of attention. Cardiotoxicities including myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, cardiac fibrosis, heart block and cardiac arrest have been reported. Of these toxicities, myocarditis is often accompanied by dysrhythmia. The presentation of sick sinus syndrome as an immune-related adverse event has not yet been reported. Here, we reported the first case of sick sinus syndrome, a rare toxicity induced by anti-PD-1. A 42-year-old male patient who had metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma failed treatment with sorafenib. Pembrolizumab at a fixed dose of 100 mg every three weeks was given. His heart rate gradually slowed down and he presented sick sinus syndrome with a lowest heart rate of 38 bpm after six cycles of pembrolizumab. He denied chest
Bradyarrhythmias occur commonly in the ICU, and most events do not necessitate temporary pacing. Transient bradycardia often occurs in the setting of enhanced vagal tone due to tracheal irritation, suction, or intubation; abdominal distention; or severe vomiting. Reversible causes such as severe electrolyte or acid-base imbalances should be corrected first whenever possible, as this may obviate the need for pacing or enhance the likelihood that a temporary lead will function appropriately when placed. Isolated sinus pauses, transient extended pauses in atrial fibrillation (AF), and nocturnal bradycardia in patients with obstructive sleep apnea are all common, and generally do not require temporary pacing. Pacing is considered when patients are having symptoms or have developed hemodynamic compromise thought to be secondary to a bradyarrhythmia, or if a rhythm is detected that is associated with a high risk of subsequent malignant bradyarrhythmia (Table 103-1). Recognizing circumstances that ...
OBJECTIVE: Angina and the presence of myocardial ischaemia are common in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dual chamber pacing results in clinical improvement in these patients. This study evaluates the effects of permanent dual chamber pacing on absolute regional myocardial perfusion and perfusion reserve. SETTING: University hospital. PATIENTS AND DESIGN: Six patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and severe symptoms of angina received a dual chamber pacemaker. Absolute myocardial regional perfusion and perfusion reserve (dipyridamole 0.56 mg/kg) were measured by dynamic positron emission tomography with 13N-ammonia both during sinus rhythm and 3 months after pacemaker insertion. Results were compared with those from 28 healthy volunteers. RESULTS: Pacing resulted in a reduction of anginal complaints and a reduction in intraventricular pressure gradient from 65 (SD 30) mm Hg to 19 (10) mm Hg. During sinus rhythm, baseline perfusion was higher in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy than ...

Looking for online definition of epicardial lead in the Medical Dictionary? epicardial lead explanation free. What is epicardial lead? Meaning of epicardial lead medical term. What does epicardial lead mean?
Background In patients with isolated SSS, who need pacemaker treatment, any pacemaker can be used to treat the symptomatic bradycardia: a single chamber atrial (AAI) pacemaker, a single chamber ventricular (VVI) pacemaker, or a dual chamber (DDD) pacemaker. In the USA and in most European countries, DDD pacing is used in most cases. It is now known from the Danish AAI/VVI trial, that AAI pacing is superior to VVI pacing, since VVI pacing is associated with a higher mortality and a higher incidence of atrial fibrillation, thromboembolic complications and heart failure. This confirms previous findings in observational studies. Therefore, VVI pacing should no longer be used in patients with SSS.. The main argument for using DDD pacing is the concern, that the patients will develop symptomatic atrioventricular (AV) block. In the Danish AAI/VVI trial, the risk of AV block was approximately 0.6% per year, which is equivalent to the risk found in a larger meta analysis. This is only a little higher ...
The focus of this thesis is the development and application of personalised computational models of cardiac electromechanics to understand and ultimately inform cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT). To achieve this goal, a semi-automatic pipeline for the generation and parameterisation of detailed biophysically based models using clinical data is presented and applied to a cohort of patients. Specifically, an anatomically based finite element model has been developed and applied to simulate cardiac electromechanics through the coupling of the monodomain and large deformation mechanics governing frameworks. Techniques have been implemented for tting high order representations of cardiac anatomy from MRI data, and myocardial conductivity, sti ness, contractility and boundary conditions from endocardial activation recordings and pressure volume loops respectively. Embedding these tting steps within a semi-automatic pipeline, this personalisation work ow has been applied to four CRT patient data ...

Aims. Single-pass VDD is a physiological stimulation mode which requires a single-lead with a floating dipole to detect the atrial signal. We investigated the impact of right heart dimensions on immediate and long-term atrial sensing stability in VDD systems to draw guidelines for optimal atrial sensitivity programming.. Methods. Forty-one patients (23 males, mean age 73±11 years) with II or III degree AV block and normal sinus node function received a Thera VDD Medtronic 8948 pulse generator with Medtronic 5032 lead. Atrial sensing was evaluated at pre-discharge and during 12-months follow-up in the supine and upright positions, during normal and forced breathing. Atrial sensing variability, quantified by a D value (mV), which represents the difference between the maximum and the minimum atrial electrogram amplitude obtained during the various activities, was analyzed and related to right heart dimensions measured at echocardiography.. Results. Long-term appropriate atrial sensing was obtained ...

NGB: Generic Pacemaker code; code used to describe pacemaker functions. Usually 3 or four letters. DDDR is a common code for pacemakers and ICDs. The first letter signifies the chamber paced. V means Ventricle, A is Atrium, D is both or Dual, O is none and occasionally S is used by some manufacturers to mean Single. The second letter indicates the chamber that is sensed (the ICD/ pacemakers detection of electrical activity). The third letter indicates the pacers response to sensing; T means it will trigger pacing, I means it will inhibit pacing D means it will do both inhibiting and triggering, and O means none. The fourth letter is for programmability functions-Rate responsiveness. P is simple Programmable; M is Multiprogrammable; C is Communicating functions (telemetry); and R is Rate Responsive. If a fourth letter is present it is usually rate responsive. Therefore, a pacemaker or ICD that is DDDR means the pacemaker is pacing electrical activity in both the atrium and the ventricle and it ...
An analysis of the NIS demonstrates that during the study period 1993 to 2008, the national CIED infection burden increased. Specifically, there was an increase in the incidence of CIED infection along with an increase in inpatient mortality. Current patients have a high number of clinical comorbidities associated with prolonged hospital stays and an increase in the utilization of medical resources reflected by an increase in hospital charges.. Over the past 20 years, the number of patients with CIEDs has dramatically increased (1-3). Among Medicare beneficiaries, the rate of cardiac device implantation increased by 42% between 1990 and 1999 (10). Our initial analysis of NIS data, which included patients with all types of insurance coverage, showed a 30% increase in the primary pacemaker implantation rate of 50.0 per 100,000 persons of population in 1993 to 65.1 per 100,000 in 2006 (1). ICD implantation rate increased more rapidly during this period of time. In 1993, the ICD implantation rate ...
At a quick glance, you will immediately notice that there seemed to be no association between the P and QRS. So, you will jump into the conclusion that this is complete heart block (CHB) or third degree AV block. However, for CHB the RR interval MUST BE REGULAR. It is because supraventricular impulses are blocked and the ventricles are depolarized by either a junctional or ventricular pacemaker and they generate a regular RR to interval. In the case presented, the RR interval is irregular. Thus, we can conclude that SOME OF THE IMPULSES were able to conduct to ventricles. R3 and R6 are captured beats or sinus beats that were conducted to the ventricles (PRI of about 0.40 sec). Hence, this is not complete heart block. This is called HIGH-GRADE or ADVANCED SECOND-DEGREE AV BLOCK. ...
Animal-handling procedures followed guidelines of the National Institutes of Health and were approved by the Animal Research Ethics Committee of the Montreal Heart Institute. Fifteen mongrel dogs (28 to 38 kg) were anesthetized with ketamine (5.3 mg/kg IV), diazepam (0.25 mg/kg IV), and halothane (1.5%). Unipolar pacing leads were inserted into the right ventricular apex and right atrial (RA) appendage under fluoroscopic guidance and were connected to pacemakers (Vitatron) in subcutaneous pockets in the neck. Atrioventricular block was created by radiofrequency catheter ablation to avoid excessively rapid ventricular responses during atrial tachypacing. The right ventricular demand pacemaker was programmed to 80 bpm. After 24-hour recovery, 7-day atrial tachypacing at 400 bpm was instituted.. Results in 5 atrial tachypaced dogs with GGA treatment were compared with 5 tachypaced dogs without GGA treatment and 5 nonpaced control dogs. GGA was given orally (120 mg/kg per day), starting 3 days ...
BACKGROUND: Rates of pregnancy post heart transplantation (HT) are increasing. Cesarean delivery (CD) rate post HT is 30%.1 Reports of anesthetic management of these patients are rare.

WASHINGTON, DC - New research shows magnetic interference from portable headphones has a clinically significant impact on the function of life-saving devices, according to a new study published in the October edition of the HeartRhythm Journal, the official journal of the Heart Rhythm Society. The study is the largest and most complete of its kind and uncovers a need for greater dialogue between doctors and patients with implanted cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) and pacemakers. Read full text of study ». An assessment of multiple portable headphone models in 100 patients revealed magnetic interference that may disrupt the function of ICDs and pacemakers and could potentially lead to life-threatening device malfunction. The study found the magnetic interference from headphones could cause improper arrhythmia detection in ICDs or asynchronous pacing in pacemaker patients. When headphones are placed fewer than 3 cm from the skin, magnetic interference may approach or exceed 10 Gauss, a level ...
