Maximo II Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillator
Maximo® II CRT-D features a defibrillator function to treat a fast heartbeat, in addition to cardiac resynchronization and pacemaker therapy. Because Maximo II is wireless, routine follow-ups can be scheduled to occur automatically and without your help—even while you are sleeping. Your doctor then receives notices of your condition and the status of your device.
Maximo® II CRT-D
PainFREE™ Therapy – Delivers painless electrical pacing pulses called Antitachycardia Pacing (ATP), which may eliminate the need for a shock.
Conexus® Wireless Telemetry – Lets your doctor remotely check your heart device without your assistance. Your device information can be collected and transmitted automatically, even while you are sleeping.
Medtronic CareAlert® Notifications – Monitoring feature set by your doctor. CareAlert Notifications can signal your clinic if your heart condition changes or if your device requires attention (for example, due to decreased battery power).
Accurate Diagnostic Data – Cardiac Compass® trends and the Heart Failure Management Report let your doctor monitor your heart function, activity and device information. This allows your doctor to see how well your device and medications are working together, and how your heart function may change over time.
Size and Placement
The heart device is surgically placed under the skin, typically below the collarbone. The electrical leads are threaded through a blood vessel into your heart.
