  • Publication number: 20160082275
    Abstract: Aspects of the invention are directed to advanced monitoring and control of medium voltage therapy (MVT) in implantable and external devices. Apparatus and methods are disclosed that facilitate dynamic adjustment of MVT parameter values in response to new and changing circumstances such as the patient's condition before, during, and after administration of MVT. Administration of MVT is automatically and dynamically adjusted to achieve specific treatment or life-support objectives, such as prolongation of the body's ability to endure and respond to MVT, specifically addressing the type of arrhythmia or other pathologic state of the patient with targeted treatment, a tiered-intensity MVT treatment strategy, and supporting patients in non life-critical conditions where the heart may nevertheless benefit from a certain level of assistance.

  • Patent number: 9168381
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for treating an arrhythmia in a patient using an electrotherapy device. The device applies a series of electrotherapy pulses in response to the presence of the arrhythmia. In one aspect, indicia of movement by the patient is sensed, and an inference is made whether the movement is an evoked response to the administration of the electrotherapy pulses. Application of subsequent electrotherapy pulses is adjusted in response to an inference of the evoked response constituting discomfort of the patient.

  • Patent number: 9061164
    Abstract: Automated treatment of arrhythmia utilizing an electrotherapy device. Time-coordinated applications of medium-voltage therapy (MVT) followed by high-voltage therapy (HVT) include a first MVT waveform to a first target region and a second MVT waveform to a second target region, such that the HVT is synchronized relative to a first compression cycle corresponding to activation of the first target region, and to a second compression cycle corresponding to activation of the second target region resulting from the administration of the MVT.

  • Patent number: 6198967
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method and device in which an external defibrillator is integrated with an algorithm implemented in a programmable microprocessor which controls and manages the formation of defibrillation waveforms. The waveforms are dynamically adjusted and created to be consistent with a myocardial cell response waveform. Dynamic tilt calculations based on time slices and corresponding fit functions based on best-fit models are used to generate the waveforms. The waveforms include a first and a second phase and are formed with minimal delay therebetween.
