  • Publication number: 20040049244
    Abstract: A system for automating the process of generating reports, such as warranty and registration reports, for programmable medical devices. The system uses a variety of data collecting and checking techniques to make the generator and transmission of such reports more efficient.

  • Publication number: 20020120311
    Abstract: A medical device programmer and a method of operation in which a first data value is received and used in the execution of one or more algorithms. One or more suggested pulse generator settings are calculated from the one or more algorithms based on the first data value, and the one or more suggested pulse generator settings are displayed on an interactive display screen of the medical device programmer. In one embodiment, the first data value is a duration interval of a QRS complex. From the duration interval, suggestions are made as to one or more ventricular chambers in which to provide pacing pulses. Additionally, pacing intervals for an AV delay are suggested based on measured P-R intervals, or pacing intervals for an LV offset are suggested based on a measured duration interval of a V-V-interval between a right ventricular event and a left ventricular event.

  • Publication number: 20020077859
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for displaying statistical distributions of cardiac events. According to one aspect, a programmer device is provided that generally comprises circuitry for communicating with a medical device, and a display. The medical device collects data regarding cardiac events occurring at two or more sites, and the display provides a histogram of the data as two or more statistical distributions for the two or more sites. In one embodiment, the data includes both sensed intrinsic cardiac events and paced cardiac events. And in another embodiment, the histogram generally comprises a plurality of histogram bins that provide statistical distributions for the cardiac events. Each of the histogram bins generally includes a portion of a first cardiac event distribution and a portion of a second cardiac event distribution.

  • Publication number: 20020077669
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for graphically configuring leads for a medical device. According to one aspect, the system generally comprises a medical device and a processing device, such as a programmer or computer, adapted to be in communication with the medical device. The medical device has at least one lead with at least one electrode in a configuration that can be changed using the processing device. The processing device provides a graphical display of the configuration. In one embodiment, the graphical display graphically represents, illustrates or displays the lead(s), the electrode(s), a pulse polarity, and a vector. According to another aspect, the method generally comprises receiving information for a medical device having at least one lead with at least one electrode in a configuration, and presenting a graphical representation of the configuration on a display.
