Shelley Cazares, Jaeho Kim, Yayun Lin, Carlos Ricci: Arrhythmia discrimination based on determination of rate dependency. Cardiac Pacemakers, Hollingsworth & Funk, January 26, 2010: US07653431 (33 worldwide citation)

Cardiac systems and methods provide for discriminating between supraventricular tachyarrhythmia and ventricular tachyarrhythmia based on a determination that the patient's supraventricular rhythm exhibits rate dependency. One approach involves determining if a patient's supraventricular rhythm exhib ...

Yayun Lin: Cardiac rhythm management systems and methods for detecting or validating cardiac beats in the presence of noise. Cardiac Pacemakers, Schwegman Lundberg Woessner & Kluth, May 8, 2007: US07215993 (22 worldwide citation)

This document describes systems, devices, and methods for detecting or validating cardiac beats, such as in the presence of myopotential or other noise. In one example, an amplitude peak, which is a candidate for a detected cardiac beat, is used in a weighted average, along with a preceding and subs ...
