Sensia Pacing System

The Sensia® Pacing System provides proven pacing with expanded options.

Overview

Pacing Redefined – The New Standard

The new standard of care in pacing is to reduce unnecessary right ventricular pacing to as close to zero as possible. Mounting evidence suggests that right ventricular pacing is associated with a variety of detrimental effects, including risk of heart failure hospitalization and atrial fibrillation.1

Important Safety Information

Changes in a patient's disease and/or medications may alter the efficacy of a device's programmed parameters or related features.

The Sensia pacing system combines physiologic pacing with automaticity.

Search AV™+ Promotes Intrinsic Conduction

  • Search AV+ (SAV+) automatically and continuously searches for natural intrinsic conduction
  • SAV+ reduces unnecessary right ventricular pacing to less than 20%*2
