Device permanent defibrillator electrodes
Definition Permanent defibrillator electrodes are used with compatible implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac rhythm therapy-defibrillators (CRT-D) to sense the cardiac rhythm and to deliver high energy therapy to the heart when tachycardia is detected. Some transvenous models can also be used for pacing the right ventricle.
Physical State The device is a flexible, insulated electrical conductor with one end designed to make a secure connection to an ICD or CRT-D and the other end located in a position which directs defibrillation energy to the heart
Technical Method Used as part of an implantable defibrillation system.
Target Area Makes contact with the heart (endocardial or myocardial tissue) or is located in a proximity and orientation that creates a vector for defibrillation energy to the heart.
