The following information applies to all Streamline models:

Contraindications: There are no known general contraindications to temporary post-surgical pacing. The particular medical condition and anatomy of the patient, however, may dictate the lead system and implantation procedure to be used.

Warnings: An implanted pacing lead forms a direct current path to the myocardium. During pacing lead insertion and testing, use only battery-powered equipment specially designed for this purpose, to protect against fibrillation that may be caused by alternating currents. Line-powered equipment used in the vicinity of the patient must be properly grounded. Pacing lead connector pins must be insulated from any leakage currents that may arise from line-powered equipment. Avoid the possibility of unintentional contact between the pacing lead(s), including extension cable, and any equipment used as well as any conductive surface contact. Leaving the lead implanted for longer than 7 days may result in difficulty or inability to extract the lead and/or bleeding. Equipment/accessories connected to all models of Heartwires shall comply with IEC 60601-1-1, type CF.

Potential Complications: The possibility of dislodgement, lead fractures, threshold elevation and sensing inconsistency exists. Other potential complications include, but are not limited to, myocardial irritability, septicaernia and myocardial infections, myocardial bleeding and damage, especially during removal of the pacing lead(s).

Precautions: It is recommended that defibrillation equipment is readily available during temporary pacing lead insertion and removal.

The packaging should be inspected prior to use. Should the seal or package be damaged, contact the local Medtronic representative.

This product should not be exposed to temperatures above 60°C (140°F)

Resterilization: The temporary pacing lead has been ethylene-oxide sterilized prior to shipment. Do not resterilize. Expired products shall be discarded.
