Title (EN) DIGITAL ELECTRODE FOR CARDIAC RHYTHM MANAGEMENT
(FR) ELECTRODE NUMERIQUE DE GESTION DU RYTHME CARDIAQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A cardiac rhythm management apparatus includes a proximal housing, a distal housing and a lead. The proximal housing includes a first energy storage device. The distal module is implantable within a patient's heart, and includes a second energy storage device, at least one electrode, and a control module. The control module controls the delivery of at least one electrical stimulus from the second energy storage device to a location in communication with the patient's heart. The lead connects the proximal housing to the distal module and is configured to communicate one or more digital signals between the proximal housing and the distal module.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un appareil de gestion du rythme cardiaque comportant un boîtier proximal un boîtier distal et un conducteur. Le boîtier proximal comporte un premier dispositif de stockage d'énergie. Le module distal, qui s'implante dans le coeur du patient, comporte un deuxième dispositif de stockage d'énergie, au moins une électrode, et un module de commande. Le module de commande gère la délivrance d'au moins un stimulus électrique par le deuxième dispositif de stockage d'énergie à un site communiquant avec le coeur du patient. Le conducteur reliant le boîtier proximal au module distal transmet un ou plusieurs signaux numériques entre le boîtier proximal et le module distal.
