Title
(EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS INVOLVING SUBCUTANEOUS ELECTRODE POSITIONING RELATIVE TO A HEART
(FR) METHODES ET SYSTEMES RELATIFS AU POSITIONNEMENT SOUS CUTANE D'ELECTRODES PAR RAPPORT AU COEUR
Abstract
(EN)
An approach for implementing a subcutaneous medical electrode system involves positioning a number of electrode subsystems in relation to a heart so that a majority of ventricular tissue is included within a volume defined between the electrode subsystems. One of the electrode subsystems so positioned may include a can electrode located on a housing enclosing a medical device. The medical device may be configured to provide therapeutic, diagnostic, or monitoring functions, including, for example, cardiac arrhythmia therapy.
(FR)
La mise en oeuvre d'un système d'électrodes médicales sous-cutanées passe par la mise en place d'un certain nombre de sous-systèmes d'électrodes par rapport au coeur de telle sorte les tissus ventriculaires soient majoritairement inclus dans le volume défini entre lesdits sous-systèmes. L'un des sous-systèmes d'électrodes ainsi positionnés peut renfermer une électrode disposée sur un boîtier qui contient un dispositif médical. Ce dispositif médical peut s'acquitter de fonctions thérapeutiques (traitement d'une arythmie cardiaque, par exemple), diagnostiques et de contrôle.
