Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DISCRIMINATION OF VENTRICULAR AND SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA AND METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DISCRIMINATING BETWEEN A RAPID HEART RHYTHM OF SINUS ORIGIN AND RAPID HEART RHYTHM OF NON-SINUS ORIGIN
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE DISTINGUER LA TACHYCARDIE VENTRICULAIRE DE LA TACHYCARDIE SUPRAVENTRICULAIRE ET PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE DISTINGUER UN RYTHME CARDIAQUE RAPIDE D'ORIGINE SINUSALE D'UN RYTHME CARDIAQUE RAPIDE D'ORIGINE NON SINUSALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for dicrimination between ventricular and supraventricular tachycardia and an apparatus for performing the method. In response to the detection of the occurrence of a tachycardia, stimulus pulses are delivered to one or both of the SA and AV nodal fat pads. The response of the heart rhythm to these stimulus pulses is monitored. Depending upon the change or lack of change in the heart rhythm, a diagnosis is made as to the origin of the tachycardia.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de distinguer la tachycardie ventriculaire de la tachycardie supraventriculaire ainsi qu'un appareil permettant d'apppliquer ce procédé. En réponse à la détection d'une tachycardie, des stimuli sont envoyés à une des lames graisseuses nodales SA et AV ou les deux. La réponse du rythme cardiaque à ces stimulis est surveillée. Selon le changement ou l'absence de changement du rythme cardiaque on peut diagnostiquer l'origine de la tachycardie.
