Anne M Street, Matthew G Fishler: Method for monitoring heart failure via respiratory patterns. Pacesetter, Steven M Mitchell, July 8, 2003: US06589188 (166 worldwide citation)

Detection and monitoring of periodic breathing (PB) to provide an indication of changes in the hemodynamic status of a heart failure patient is accomplished by monitoring at least one of four independent physiologic parameters. The physiologic parameters are respiratory tidal volume, respiratory rat ...

Anne M Street: Arrhythmia forecasting based on morphology changes in intracardiac electrograms. Pacesetter, Steven M Mitchell, February 4, 2003: US06516219 (19 worldwide citation)

A method and apparatus for forecasting arrhythmia based on real-time intact intracardiac electrograms. Real-time changes in the electrograms that may be used to predict an impending arrhythmia are identified from non-arrhythmic complexes of the intracardiac electrogram prior to the onset of a sponta ...

Anne M Street: Intracardiac predictor of imminent arrhythmia. Pacesetter, Steven M Mitchell, September 5, 2000: US06115627 (17 worldwide citation)

A medical device includes a sensing unit for creating digital data representing the electrical activity of a heart and a controller for, among other things, predicting the onset of an arrhythmia in the heart. From the digital data created by the sensing unit, the controller extracts data that repres ...
