  • Publication number: 20210259611
    Abstract: Computer implemented methods and systems for detecting arrhythmias in cardiac activity are provided. The method is under control of one or more processors configured with specific executable instructions. The method obtains a far field cardiac activity (CA) data set that includes far field CA signals for beats. The method applies a feature enhancement function to the CA signals to form an enhanced feature in the CA data set. The method calculates an adaptive sensitivity level and sensitivity limit based on the enhanced feature from one or more beats within the CA data set and automatically iteratively analyzes a beat segment of interest by comparing the beat segment of interest to the current sensitivity level to determine whether one or more R-waves are present within the beat segment of interest.

  • Publication number: 20210205615
    Abstract: A method of pacing a His bundle of a patient heart using a stimulation system including a memory, a pulse generator, a stimulating electrode and at least one sensing electrode includes applying a plurality of impulses through the stimulating electrode to induce a plurality of responses from the patient heart. Each impulse of the plurality of impulses is delivered at a different impulse energy corresponding to a respective output setting of the stimulation system. The response characteristics for each of the plurality of responses are measured and each impulse is assigned a classification based on whether the respective response characteristics indicate capture of one or both of the His bundle and a ventricle of the patient heart. The output setting and classification for each impulse is then stored in the memory.

  • Patent number: 10850107
    Abstract: Systems and methods of performing cardio resynchronization therapy (CRT) on a patient heart include the use of a stimulation system having at least one processor, at least one memory, a pulse generator, a stimulating electrode disposed in proximity to a His bundle of the patient heart, and a sensing electrode adapted to sense electrical activity of the left ventricle (LV) of the patient heart. CRT is provided by applying, using the pulse generator and through the stimulating electrode, a His bundle pacing (HBP) impulse having a first impulse energy. The sensing electrode is then used to measure an LV activation time in response to the HBP impulse. At least one setting of the pulse generator is modified based on the LV activation time such that a subsequent HBP impulse may be provided by the pulse generator via the stimulating electrode using a modified impulse energy.
