Electrodes for temporary cardiac stimulation
Electrodes are used for temporary transvenous cardiac stimulation (up to 2 weeks), mainly for resuscitation of patients with ventricular arrest. They can be used in existent or impending bradycardia caused by disease of the conduction system and acute myocardial infarction. Indications for use may include procedures in which a clinically significant decrease in heart rate may occur, as well as the need to control recurrent, dangerous ventricular arrhythmias.
Electrodes are sterile, disposable medical devices. Electrodes are visible in X-ray imaging and are fully biocompatible.
Electrodes are compatible with most clinically used external pacemakers, including pacemakers with safe (protected) electrical connections, which is due to the use of additional electrical plug covers.
Electrodes are characterized by safe and easy insertion and positioning in cavities of the heart. Electrodes ensure a safe and stable transfer of electric charges/ potentials between the heart and an external pacemaker.
