20100286743 | Methods and Systems for Mitigating the Occurrence of Arrhythmia During Atrial Pacing - Noncaptured atrial paces can result in long-short cardiac cycles which are proarrhythmic for ventricular tachyarrhythmia. Approaches are described which are directed to avoiding proarrhythmic long-short cycles. For cardiac cycles in which the atrial pace captures the atrium, a first post ventricular refractory period (PVARP) and a first A-A interval are used. For cardiac cycles in which the atrial pace does not capture the atrium, both an extended PVARP and an extended A-A interval are used. The A-A interval following a noncaptured atrial pace is extended from an atrial depolarization sensed during the extended PVARP. | 11-11-2010 |

20110245890 | METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PACING SAFETY MARGIN - An apparatus comprises a cardiac signal sensing circuit, a pacing therapy circuit, and a controller circuit. The controller circuit includes a safety margin calculation circuit.

20120303082 | Adjusting Cardiac Pacing Response Sensing Intervals - Discrimination between different types of possible cardiac pacing responses may depend on the timing of expected features that are sensed within a temporal framework. The temporal framework may include classification intervals, blanking periods and appropriately timed back up paces. The classification intervals and blanking periods of the temporal framework are intervals of time that have time parameters that include start time, end time, and length. The relationships and timing parameters of the elements of the temporal framework, e.g., blanking periods, classification intervals, delay periods, and backup pacing, should support detection of features used to discriminate between different types of pacing responses. As the system learns the morphology of the particular patient by analyzing the waveform of the pacing response signal, the temporal framework for pacing response determination may be adjusted to accommodate the individual patient. | 11-29-2012 |
