Kappa 900® Pacing System
The Power to Know

Hand holding paperThe power of Kappa 900 is its ability to assist the physician in making patient and arrhythmia management decisions.

  • Monitoring and diagnostic capabilities that you’ve never seen before…that are designed to help you answer your most critical questions:
    • What types of arrhythmias are present?
    • Are the symptoms related to the arrhythmias?
    • What is the ventricular rate during atrial arrhythmias?
    • What is the arrhythmia burden?
    • Is a change in medication or other therapy advised?
  • Atrial Arrhythmia Management tools built on the world’s most trusted pacing system…to provide optimum patient management:
    • Mode Switch detection accuracy that is 100% specific, with 94-100% sensitivity.1-3
    • Sensing Assurance™ designed to maintain appropriate sensitivity during changing patient conditions.
  • Ventricular Capture Management Enhancements with more clinically relevant values and designed to ensure appropriate safety margins as clinical conditions change.
    • Multiple EGMs are collected when triggered by atrial and/or ventricular high rates.
    • Blanked Flutter Search is designed to detect and Mode Switch for 2:1 atrial flutter.
  • Medtronic’s exclusive safety net suite of features.
