Jesse W Hartley, Marc H Cohen, Nicholas J Stessman, Scott A Reedstrom, Steven D Check, James P Nelson: Rate adaptive cardiac rhythm management device using transthoracic impedance. Cardiac Pacemakers, Schwegman Lundberg Woessner and Kluth, June 13, 2000: US06076015 (381 worldwide citation)

A cardiac rhythm management (CRM) device detects transthoracic impedance, extracts ventilation or other information, and adjusts a delivery rate of the CRM therapy accordingly. A four-phase sequence of alternating direction current pulse stimuli is periodically delivered to a patient's thorax. A tra ...

Andrew P Kramer, Jeffrey E Stahmann, Rene H Wentkowski, Kenneth L Baker, Jesse W Hartley, David B Krig: System providing ventricular pacing and biventricular coordination. Cardiac Pacemakers, Schwegman Lundberg Woessner & Kluth P A, September 4, 2001: US06285907 (294 worldwide citation)

A cardiac rhythm management system includes techniques for computing an indicated pacing interval, AV delay, or other timing interval. In one embodiment, a variable indicated pacing interval is computed based at least in part on an underlying intrinsic heart rate. The indicated pacing interval is us ...

Jeffrey E Stahmann, Jesse W Hartley: Multi-sensor blending in a rate responsive cardiac pacemaker. Cardiac Pacemakers, Haugen and Nikolai, December 27, 1994: US05376106 (158 worldwide citation)

A multi-sensor blending circuit for use in a rate responsive cardiac pacemaker. The blending logic circuit blends delta pacing rate signals from two or more sensors which measure physical and physiological parameters of a patient. Programmable equations stored in the blending logic circuit determine ...

Quan Ni, John D Hatlestad, Jesse W Hartley, Jeff E Stahmann, Jaeho Kim, Kent Lee: Detection of disordered breathing. Cardiac Pacemakers, Hollingsworth & Funk, August 7, 2007: US07252640 (116 worldwide citation)

Devices and methods for detecting disordered breathing involve determining that the patient is asleep and sensing one or more signals associated with disordered breathing indicative of sleep-disordered breathing while the patient is asleep. Sleep-disordered breathing is detected using the sensed sig ...
