Medtronic paths associated with this specificity

Patient implanted with a single-chamber ICD (Protecta VR) for ischemic cardiomyopathy and hospitalized for several syncopal episodes with electrical shocks; this tracing shows a control episode of the "normal" functioning of an ICD with correct detection of ventricular fibrillation and successful treatment by a maximum electrical shock

Same patient as in the previous tracing; second episode of syncopal ventricular arrhythmia; this tracing allows focusing on the functioning of the post-shock phase following an electrical shock.

Patient with severe ischemic cardiomyopathy implanted with a CRT device (Viva XT CRT-D) hospitalized for syncope and several electrical shocks; this tracing allows focusing on the management of patients with a high defibrillation "threshold".

Patient implanted with a single-chamber ICD (EnTrust VR) for ischemic cardiomyopathy; palpitations and recording of several episodes of ventricular arrhythmia detected in the VF zone; this tracing allows focusing on the interest of anti-tachycardia pacing in the VF zone.

Same patient as the previous tracing.

Patient implanted with a single-chamber ICD (Entrust VR) for dilated cardiomyopathy; tachycardia episodes detected in the VT zone; this tracing allows discussing the value of anti-tachycardia pacing in the VT zone.

Patient implanted with dual-chamber ICD (Entrust DR) for ischemic cardiomyopathy; consultation for electrical shock.

Patient implanted with a triple-chamber ICD (Protecta XT CRT-D) for ischemic cardiomyopathy; the recorded episode shows the limitations of the programming of a low-amplitude shock in the VT zone.
