  • Patent number: 10744334
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting cardiac arrhythmias such as an atrial fibrillation (AF) are described herein. The AF detection system includes a sensor circuit to sense a physiological signal, a heartbeat processor to recognize a plurality of beat patterns using cycle length of two more consecutive cardiac cycles. The beat patterns can be indicative of temporal relationship between the consecutive cardiac cycles. The heartbeat processor may generate a repetitiveness indictor based on a statistical measurement of various beat patterns. The AF detection system includes an arrhythmia detector to detect an episode of AF based on the repetitiveness indictor, and to discriminate the AF from other arrhythmias of atrio-ventricular conduction abnormalities.

  • Patent number: 10702167
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a sensing circuit configured to generate a sensed physiological signal that includes physiological information of a subject, a detection circuit, and a control circuit. The detection circuit detects a physiological condition of a subject using the physiological signal. The control circuit stores sampled values of a segment of the physiological signal in temporary memory storage; and stores the sampled values in non-temporary storage in response to receiving an indication of continued detection of the physiological condition.

  • Patent number: 10201709
    Abstract: An example of a system may include a depletion block neural stimulator and a depletion block controller. The depletion block neural stimulator may be configured to deliver a depletion block stimulation to a nerve. The depletion block stimulation may include a series of pulses at a pulse frequency within a range between about 100 Hz to about 1000 Hz. The depletion block controller may be configured to communicate with the depletion block neural stimulator and control the depletion block stimulation. The depletion block controller may be configured to receive a start depletion block signal and respond to the received start depletion block signal by initiating the delivery of the depletion block stimulation to the nerve, and the depletion block controller may be configured to receive a stop depletion block signal and respond to the received stop depletion block signal by terminating the delivery of the depletion block stimulation to the nerve.

  • Publication number: 20180178007
    Abstract: Delivery devices, systems, and methods for delivering implantable leadless pacing devices are disclosed. An example delivery device may include a tubular member and a distal holding section extending distally of a distal end of the tubular member and defining a cavity therein for receiving an implantable leadless pacing device. The delivery device may facilitate vascular delivery of the pacing device to a left side of a patient's heart. In one example, a distal tip portion may extend distal of the distal holding section and may be actuated between a closed and an opened position. When in the closed position, the distal tip portion may have a tip that can puncture or engage an opening in a septum between a left atrium and a right atrium of a patient's heart. Actuating the distal tip portion to an opened position may be utilized to dilate the puncture or opening in the septum.

  • Patent number: 9878164
    Abstract: Methods and device for determining a pacing vector for delivering an electrostimulation therapy are described. An implantable medical device may be configured to determine an anode capture threshold and a cathode capture threshold for a first anode and cathode pair of electrodes, switch a polarity of the first anode and cathode pair of electrodes, and determine an anode capture threshold and a cathode capture threshold for the first anode and cathode pair of electrodes having the switched polarity. The implantable medical device may be further configured to compare a cathodal capture threshold for the anode and cathode pair having the switched polarity to the anodal capture threshold of the first anode and cathode pair of electrodes and select either an anode or a cathode for delivering an electrostimulation therapy based at least in part on the comparison. Other methods and systems are also contemplated and described.

  • Patent number: 9764144
    Abstract: Implanted medical device data is received, where the data was sensed by a first lead portion and a sensor over a time period. The number of detected noise events sensed by the first lead portion is counted based on applying first noise detection criteria to the data sensed by the first lead portion. The number of detected noise events over the sensor is counted based on applying second noise detection criteria to the data sensed by the sensor. The mean number of detected noise events is calculated for the first lead portion and sensor based on the number of noise events sensed by the first lead portion and the number of noise events sensed by the sensor. Potential lead failure in the first lead is recorded if the number of detected noise events over the first lead is greater than the mean number of noise events by at least 5%.

  • Patent number: 9440088
    Abstract: The technology disclosed herein relates to a method for lead analysis for an implanted medical device. A summary data record is retrieved associated with one or more episodes from an implanted medical device through a communication module. Episode selection criteria are applied to the summary data record by a processing module. One or more episode data records are retrieved from the implanted medical device for one or more episodes for which the episode selection criteria was satisfied. Noise detection criteria are applied to the episode data record. A notification module is configured to generate an alert if the noise detection criteria are satisfied.
