Visia AF and Visia AF MRI

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs) for Tachyarrhythmia Management

Single Chamber ICD + AF Diagnostics

Visia AF™ and Visia AF MRI™ are the only single chamber ICDs with a traditional lead that enable you to continuously monitor, diagnose, and manage atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. Ensure your patients get 1.5T and 3T MRI access with Visia AF MRI, when MR conditions for use are met.

The Need for AF Diagnostics in Single Chamber ICDs

  • 20% of single chamber ICD patients may also develop new onset AF within the first two 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

Novel AF Detection

Atrial Fibrillation can conduct into the ventricle resulting in a variable heart rate, which can lead to variability in the timing of the R waves. Visia AF and Visia AF MRI monitor R-R variability and look for patterns, then determine if the variability and pattern are sufficient to meet the classification of AF.

CLINICALLY PROVEN

Based on clinically proven AF detection,10 Visia AF and Visia AF MRI have high AF burden and episode sensitivity.

Complete Diagnostics + CareAlert® Notifications

Visia AF and Visia AF MRI provide valuable information to aid decision making. Evaluate AF episodes and burden with programmable alerts to help manage AF patients.
