Visia AF VR

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs)

Visia AF ICD System

SINGLE CHAMBER ICD + AF DIAGNOSTICS

The only single chamber implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) with a traditional lead, which enables physicians to continuously monitor, diagnose, and manage atrial fibrillation (AF) patients.

THE NEED FOR AF DIAGNOSTICS in a single chamber ICD

  • 20% of single chamber ICD patients may also develop new onset AF within the first 2 years post-implant1
  • AF increases the risk of stroke by up to 5x2
  • AF increases the risk of heart failure by 3x3
  • 79-94% of AF episodes are asymptomatic4-9
  • 68% of AT/AF episodes are missed with annual Holter monitoring9
