• implantation
  • P-related risk factors include age, chronic steroid therapy, anticoagulation (predisposing patients to post-implantation pocket hematoma), diabetes mellitus, heart failure, renal failure, immunosuppressive therapy, or presence of a central venous catheter (risk factor for bacteremia and subsequent device seeding) are the most significant predisposing conditions.

  • atrial
  • They sense atrial or ventricular electrical activity, classify these signals to various programmed "heart rate zones," deliver tiered therapies to terminate ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation, and pace for bradycardia. (apsf.org)
  • devices
  • Systems are implanted by testing external or implantable devices at different tissue sites, observing physiologic and device responses, and selecting sites with preferred performance for implanting the systems. (google.es)
  • rhythms
  • An implantable medical device and associated method for automatically generating morphology templates during fast cardiac rhythms, confirming a provisional template as a confirmed template, and using the confirmed template to classify subsequent detected arrhythmias. (google.com)
  • Some external units, known as automated external defibrillators (AEDs), automate the diagnosis of treatable rhythms, meaning that lay responders or bystanders are able to use them successfully with little or no training. (wikipedia.org)
