  • Patent number: 10864378
    Abstract: Regulating cardiac activity may include pacing the patient's heart at a starting pacing rate and instigating an intrinsic heart beat search algorithm that includes pacing at a reduced rate for a period of time and capturing electrical signals representative of cardiac electrical activity while pacing at the reduced rate in order to determine a presence or absence of intrinsic heart beats. If intrinsic heart beats are not detected, the heart may be paced at a further reduced rate for a period of time. If intrinsic beats are detected, the heart may be paced again at the starting pacing rate. This may continue until intrinsic heart beats are detected or until a lower search rate limit is reached. Diagnostic data may be collected at each stage and transmitted to a display device for analysis by a physician or the like.

  • Publication number: 20200375490
    Abstract: Systems and methods for classifying a cardiac arrhythmia are discussed. An exemplary system includes a correlator circuit to generate autocorrelation sequences using information of cardiac activity of a subject, including signal segments taken from a cardiac signal at respective elapsed time with respect to reference time. The correlator circuit can generate a correlation image using the autocorrelation sequences. The correlation image may be constructed by stacking the autocorrelation sequences according to the elapsed time of signal segments. An arrhythmia classifier circuit can classify the cardiac activity of the subject as one of arrhythmia types using the correlation image.

  • Publication number: 20200179692
    Abstract: Systems and methods for pacing cardiac conductive tissue are described. An exemplary system includes an electrostimulation circuit that may generate HBP pulses to stimulate patient physiologic conduction pathway, such as a His bundle or a bundle branch. The system includes an arrhythmia detector to detect an atrial tachyarrhythmia (AT) with intermittent ventricular conduction. A control circuit may sense ventricular activation and, in response to the detected AT indication, determine or update a His-bundle pacing (HBP) configuration. The HBP may be recursively updated on a beat-by-beat basis using the sensed ventricular activation. The electrostimulation circuit may deliver HBP according to the determined or adjusted HBP configuration to regularize ventricular rate during AT.

  • Publication number: 20200178829
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial tachyarrhythmia (AT) are discussed. An exemplary system includes a ventricular beat analyzer circuit to detect ventricular beats and assess ventricular activity, such as to evaluate a ventricular rate stability. The system includes an arrhythmia detector circuit to detect respective AT indications in distinct time periods using portions of received physiologic information during the distinct time periods. A control circuit can monitor the ventricular beats on a beat-by-beat basis, in response to the detected ventricular beats satisfying an instability condition, trigger AT detections during the distinct time periods and withhold AT detection in a subsequent time period if no AT is detected in the present time period. An AT characteristic may be generated using the detected AT indications. A therapy may be delivered in accordance with the AT characteristic.

  • Publication number: 20200179705
    Abstract: Systems and methods for dynamically controlling HBP delivery based on patient AV conduction status are disclosed. An exemplary medical system includes an electrostimulation circuit to generate HBP pulses to stimulate a His bundle or a bundle branch of the heart. An AV conduction monitor circuit continuously or periodically assesses AV conduction status, and detects an indication of presence or absence of AV conduction abnormality. If an AV conduction abnormality is indicated, a control circuit may control the electrostimulation circuit to deliver the HBP pulses. Ventricular backup pacing may be delivered if HBP fails to capture and elicit ventricular activation. When the AV conduction become normal, the control circuit may withhold HBP delivery and promote patient intrinsic ventricular activation.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for pacing cardiac conductive tissue are described. In an embodiment, a medical system includes an electrostimulation circuit to generate pacing pulses to stimulate a His bundle or a bunch branch. A sensing circuit senses a far-field ventricular activation, determines a cardiac synchrony indicator using the far-field ventricular activation in response to His bundle or bundle branch pacing, and verifies His-bundle capture status using the determined cardiac synchrony indicator. The system can determine a pacing threshold using the capture status under different stimulation strength values. The electrostimulation circuit can deliver stimulation pulses in accordance with the determined pacing threshold.

  • Patent number: 10617320
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a sensing circuit configured to generate a sensed physiological signal representative of cardiac activity of a subject, an arrhythmia detection circuit, a control circuit, and a memory. The arrhythmia detection circuit detects an episode of atrial fibrillation (AF) in the sensed cardiac signal using a first AF detection criterion, and detects the episode of AF using a second AF detection criterion. The first AF detection criterion has greater sensitivity to AF detection than the second AF detection criterion, and the second AF detection criterion has greater specificity to AF detection than the first AF detection criterion. The control circuit initiates storing of sampled values of a segment of the cardiac signal that includes the episode of AF when the episode of AF is detected by both the first AF detection criterion and the second AF detection criterion.

  • Publication number: 20200016420
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting physiologic events in a patient are described herein. An embodiment of a medical system includes a memory circuit to store physiologic event episodes detected and recorded by a medical device. The system includes a control circuit to analyze the stored physiologic event episodes, and determine a presence of a target cardiac event under a plurality of detection settings. Using the determined presence of the target cardiac event from the stored physiologic event episodes, and user adjudication of the stored event episodes, the control circuit may select, from the plurality of detection settings, a detection setting to detect a subsequent target cardiac event. The control circuit may also prioritize the physiologic event episodes for storage in the memory circuit.

  • Publication number: 20200009380
    Abstract: Systems and methods for pacing cardiac conductive tissue are described. An embodiment of a medical system includes an electrostimulation circuit to generate His-bundle pacing (HBP) pulses to stimulate a His bundle, and a cardiac event detector to detect a His-bundle activity within a time window following an atrial activity. The cardiac event detector may use a cross-chamber blanking, or an adjustable His-bundle sensing threshold, to avoid or reduce over-sensing of far-field atrial activity and inappropriate inhibition of HBP therapy. The electrostimulation circuit may deliver HBP in the presence of the His-bundle activity. The system may further recognize the detected His-bundle activity as either a FFPW or a valid inhibitory event, and deliver or withhold HBP therapy based on the recognition of the His-bundle activity.
