  • Publication number: 20220323770
    Abstract: Methods, devices and program products are provided for managing a pacing therapy using an implantable medical device (IMD). The methods, devices and program products sense cardiac activity (CA) signals at electrodes located proximate to multiple left ventricular (LV) sites and a right ventricular (RV) site of the heart and utilizing one or more processors to measure activation times between the multiple LV sites and the RV site based on the CA signals. The processors program an order of activation for the multiple LV sites based on the activation times and identify an RV activation time and a septum activation time based on the CA signals. The processors calculate a septum to RV activation time (SRAT) based on the RV and septum activation times and program an AVSRAT delay based on the SRAT.

  • Publication number: 20210205133
    Abstract: A system for forming a corneal implant includes a cutting apparatus, which includes a laser source that emits a laser and optical elements that direct the laser. The system includes a controller implemented with at least one processor and at least one data storage device. The controller generates a sculpting plan for modifying a first shape of a lenticule formed from corneal tissue and achieving a second shape for the lenticule to produce a corneal implant with a refractive profile to reshape a recipient eye. The sculpting plan is determined from measurements relating to the lenticule having the first shape and information relating to a refractive profile for a corneal implant. The controller controls the cutting apparatus to direct, via the one or more optical elements, the laser from the laser source to sculpt the lenticule according to the sculpting plan to produce the corneal implant with the refractive profile.
