Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD)

Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD)

Tachycardia refers to any heartbeat greater than 100 beats per minute. This can originate from the top of the heart and above the ventricle, and therefore is called a supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), or from the ventricle (bottom chamber). Patients may have no symptoms. This is more common with increasing age. For patients who do experience symptoms, these include palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness and skipped beats. The patient often perceives the irregular heartbeat as very unpleasant. Loss of consciousness may result if the heart rate becomes too rapid. A heart failure implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) delivers electroshocks to terminate tachycardias.

Ilivia Neo 7

For more than 50 years, BIOTRONIK has been constantly demonstrating innovation and excellent quality in all its components. Perfection is the basis for the lifelong protection of patients with an implanted cardioverter-defibrillator. The innovative Ilivia Neo 7 series of ICDs with DF-1 connector provides new functions and a longer service life in the dimensions of the device, which are identical to the previous generation (Ilivia 7), which facilitates the replacement of the device.

Acticor 7

For patients with arrhythmias, ICD therapy can be an essential safety net, where it’s vital to minimize risk and improve quality of life in the long term. This is what the all-new, smaller and simpler Acticor 7 ICD systems are engineered to do for up to 15 years – optimizing therapy when and where it matters. When used with Home Monitoring technology, AF can be detected earlier and both inappropriate shocks and hospitalization rates can be reduced. And this has been clinically proven.
