A New Era in Physiologic Pacing

The first-ever pacemaker to include Managed Ventricular Pacing (MVP®), the EnRhythm® Pacing System promotes intrinsic conduction and is clinically proven to significantly reduce unnecessary right ventricular (RV) pacing.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.

MVP – Promotes Intrinsic Conduction

Managed Ventricular Pacing (MVP®) provides opportunity for your patient to conduct intrinsically while providing backup pacing if needed.2

  • Promotes intrinsic conduction
  • Significantly reduces unnecessary right ventricular pacing1,3
  • Primarily operates in AAI(R) pacing mode while providing the safety of dual chamber backup pacing support if necessary
  • In the EnRhythm clinical trial, MVP Mode reduced right ventricular pacing to 1.6% (median) in all pacing indicated patients, including patients with advanced heart block. MVP Mode reduced right ventricular pacing to 0.5% (median) when patients with persistent 2nd and 3rd degree AV block were excluded.4

Cardiac Compass – More Than a Year of Cardiac Insight

Diagnostic information helps you monitor the effectiveness of patient therapies:

  • Cardiac Compass® graphically displays more than a year’s worth of a patient's clinical progress
  • Displays total amount of atrial and ventricular pacing
  • Provides information on AF burden for assessment of rhythm control
  • Displays ventricular rate during AT and AF episodes for assessment of rate control
  • Graphically displays patient’s average day and night ventricular rates, daily activity and monthly heart rate variability for detecting signs of worsening heart failure
  • Stores up to 16.5 minutes of dual channel EGM with filtering capability
  • Includes histograms containing “Prior to Last Session” and “Since Last Session” data to make medical therapy or device programming changes and confirm if previous changes have been effective

Reactive Atrial ATP – More Opportunities to Restore Sinus Rhythm

Reactive Antitachycardia Pacing (ATP) Therapies and Intervention Algorithms for atrial tachyarrhythmias offer your patient more opportunities to restore and maintain sinus rhythm.

  • ATP quickly delivers painless therapies to the right atrium to restore sinus rhythm5,6
  • 54% of device-defined atrial tachyarrhythmias are pace terminable5
  • Reactive ATP™ continuously monitors and responds to changes in the rate or regularity of AT episodes, and appropriately delivers atrial ATP therapies
