  • Description du dispositif
    Guidant INSIGNIA I Ultra family of pacemakers includes the following: SR (models1190); and DR (models1290, 1291). Intermedics NEXUS I Ultra family of pacemakers includes the following: SR (model 1390) and DR (model 1490, 1491). The INSIGNIA I Ultra pacemakers are multiprogrammable pacemakers from Guidant. The NEXUS I Ultra pacemakers are multiprogrammable pacemakers from Intermedics. The family consists of both dual-chamber and single-chamber models, offering adaptive-rate therapy and providing various levels of therapeutic and diagnostic functionality. These pacemakers include ventricular Automatic Capture which automatically measures the ventricular pacing threshold and adjusts the pacing output to 0.5 V above the measured threshold. Two sensors are available: these adapt the pacing rate to the patient''s changing metabolic demand. Minute ventilation responds to changes in respiration, and the accelerometer responds to patient activity (motion). INSIGNIA and NEXUS I Ultra models can use either the accelerometer or minute ventilation sensor, or a blend of both accelerometer and minute ventilation. Sterilized with gaseous ethylene oxide.
