Chester L Struble, David Dunham: Control of pacing rate in mode switching implantable medical devices. Medtronic, Thomas F Woods, Eric R Waldkoette, Tom G Berry, November 5, 2002: US06477420 (57 worldwide citation)

An implantable medical device and method of pacing provide for switching from a first pacing mode to second pacing mode upon detection of a period of accelerated atrial arrhythmia. Generally, the second pacing mode has an associated predetermined lower pacing rate. At least initially, upon switching ...

Chester L Struble, Pierre A Grandjean: Hysteresis activation of accelerated pacing. Medtronic, Paul H McDowall, Girma Wolde Michael, May 3, 2005: US06889078 (13 worldwide citation)

An improved pacemaker has a hysteresis feature that activates accelerated pacing during periods of sinus arrest and/or extreme bradycardia. When the patient's intrinsic heart rate drops below a hysteresis rate, the pacemaker reverts to a programmable accelerated rate or to the average cardiac rate. ...
