Improving fidelity of acquired cardiac signals may potentially increase the diagnostic value of these signals, thereby possibly improving accuracy and efficiency of the EP studies and related procedures.
Place and Duration of Study: Department of EP studies, Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology and National Institute of Heart Diseases, Rawalpindi, from Aug 2017 to Jan 2018.
In EP studies, the wave form peak is most commonly used as the measurement point.
Searching for the origin of syncope can be expensive ($7,500 to $16,000 per patient) as a result of monitoring inpatient and outpatient settings, consults with cardiologists, TT test, and EP studies (Futterman & Lemberg, 2000; Krahn et al., 1999a).
Finally, the V-LERT(TM) catheter will be designed as a quadripolar pace/record and defibrillation catheter for use in the right ventricle during routine EP studies. The ALERT(R)System, then, has the potential to become a significant product, which could be used in every invasive EP procedure, and considered for use in every open-heart procedure as well.
