(FR) DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL POUR COMMUNIQUER AVEC UN STIMULATEUR CARDIAQUE SANS FIL IMPLANTABLE UNIQUEMENT PENDANT DES TEMPS COMPRIS ENTRE DES PÉRIODES DE SUPPRESSION
Abstract
(EN)
A medical device comprises a communication module for communicating with an implantable leadless cardiac pacemaker through body tissue and a controller operatively coupled to the communication module. The controller is configured to identify intrinsic heartbeats (1502a-1502c), provide message blanking periods (1510a-1510c) and communicate (1504, 1505, 1515) with the implantable leadless cardiac pacemaker via the communication module only during times between the message blanking periods.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif médical qui comprend un module de communication pour communiquer avec un stimulateur cardiaque sans fil implantable à travers un tissu corporel, et une unité de commande accouplée de façon fonctionnelle au module de communication. L'unité de commande est configurée pour identifier des battements de cœur intrinsèques (1502a à 1502c), fournir des périodes de suppression de message (1510a à 1510c) et communiquer (1504, 1505, 1515) avec le stimulateur cardiaque sans fil implantable par l'intermédiaire du module de communication uniquement pendant des temps compris entre les périodes de suppression de message.
