Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CARDIAC PROTECTION PACING
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE STIMULATION CARDIAQUE DE PROTECTION
Abstract
(EN)
A pacing system delivers cardiac protection pacing to protect the heart from injuries associated with ischemic events. The pacing system detects an ischemic event and, in response, initiates one or more cardiac protection pacing sequences each including alternative pacing and non-pacing periods. In one embodiment, the pacing system initiates cardiac protection pacing sequences including at least one postconditioning sequence to protect the heart from a detected ischemic event and a plurality prophylactic preconditioning sequences to protect the heart from probable future ischemic events.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de stimulation cardiaque qui délivre une stimulation cardiaque de protection afin de protéger le coeur de blessures associées à des événements ischémiques. Le système de stimulation cardiaque détecte un événement ischémique et, en réaction, amorce une ou plusieurs séquences de stimulation cardiaque de protection chacune comportant une autre stimulation cardiaque et des périodes de non stimulation. Dans l'un des modes de réalisation, le système de stimulation cardiaque amorce des séquences de stimulation cardiaque de protection contenant au moins une séquence de post-conditionnement afin de protéger le coeur d'un événement ischémique détecté et plusieurs séquences de pré-conditionnement prophylactique afin de protéger le coeur de futurs événements ischémiques probables.
