A CRM system enhances intracardiac electrogram-based arrhythmia detection using a wireless electrocardiogram (ECG), which is a signal sensed with implantable electrodes and approximating a surface ECG. In one embodiment, an intracardiac electrogram allows for detection of an arrhythmia, and the wire ...

An implantable medical device senses a plurality of electrograms from substantially different atrial locations, detects regional depolarizations from the electrograms, and analyzes timing relationships among the regional depolarizations. The timing relationships provide a basis for effective therapy ...

Julie Thompson: Template based AV/VA interval comparison for the discrimination of cardiac arrhythmias. Cardiac Pacemakers, Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner P A, April 7, 2009: US07515956 (17 worldwide citation)

An implantable cardioverter/defibrillator includes a tachycardia detection system that detects one-to-one (1:1) tachycardia, which is a tachycardia with a one-to-one relationship between atrial and ventricular contractions. When the 1:1 tachycardia is detected, the system discriminates ventricular t ...

This document discusses, among other things, systems, devices, and methods for detecting or classifying tachyarrhythmias or making a therapy decision. In one example, a rate-dependent threshold is used for comparing atrial and ventricular rates for classifying a tachyarrhythmia as a ventricular tach ...
