Jeffery D Snell, Harold C Schloss, Brian M Mann, John W Poore, Roy B Medlin: Method and system for recording, reporting, and displaying the distribution of pacing events over time and for using same to optimize programming. Siemens Pacesetter, Bryant R Gold, Leslie S Miller, May 10, 1994: US05309919 (342 worldwide citation)

A method and system for monitoring the behavior of an implanted pacemaker counts (records) the number of times that a given internal event or state change of the pacemaker occurs, and also determines the rate at which each event or state change thus counted occurs. The event counts and their associa ...

Jeffery D Snell, Harold C Schloss, Brian M Mann, John W Poore, Roy B Medlin: Method and system for recording and displaying a sequential series of pacing events. Siemens Pacesetter, Bryant R Gold, Leslie S Miller, Harold C Schloss, July 11, 1995: US05431691 (331 worldwide citation)

An implantable pacemaker continuously records pacing events and their respective rates of occurrence in sequence, as they occur, into an Event Record stored in a circular buffer. The circular buffer always contains the most recent events and rates collected. The recording of the pacing events select ...

Jonathan A Kleks, Stuart W Buchanan, Raymond J Wilson, John W Poore, Brian M Mann: Autocapture system for implantable pulse generator. Siemens Pacesetter, Bryant R Gold, Lisa P Weinberg, Malcolm J Romano, September 27, 1994: US05350410 (242 worldwide citation)

An autocapture system within an implantable pulse generator automatically maintains the energy of a stimulation pulse at a level just above that which is needed to effectuate capture. The electrical post-stimulus signal of the heart following delivery of a stimulation pulse is compared to a polariza ...

John W Poore: Method and system for analyzing and displaying complex pacing event records. Pacesetter, December 16, 1997: US05697959 (162 worldwide citation)

A method and system for analyzing and displaying pacing event data of an implantable pacemaker using a programmer device comprises downloading the pacing event data from the implantable pacemaker to the programmer device and processing the pacing event data to produce an Event Record. The Event Reco ...

Paul A Levine, Malcolm Clarke, John W Poore, Jason A Sholder: DDI pacing with PVC-protected hysteresis and automatic AV interval adjustment. Pacesetter, Malcolm J Romano, Harold C Schloss, Samuel M Katz, May 23, 1995: US05417714 (123 worldwide citation)

A dual-chamber pacemaker provides DDI pacing with PVC-protected hysteresis and automatic AV interval adjustment. An extended hysteresis atrial escape interval (AEI.sub.H) is invoked in response to the occurrence of either an atrial paced event followed by a sensed R-wave (an AR event), or an atrial ...
