A high percentage of BiV pacing is associated with improved CRT response.1 However, the presence of a pacing stimulus does not imply full capture.2,3 Traditional pacing counters only report the presence of a pacing stimulus, potentially leading to over-reporting of effective pacing.2,3
The EffectivCRT™ Diagnostic uses a unipolar electrogram to evaluate morphology, looking for a negative deflection which implies when a paced beat is effective.4
In 18% of patients, device-reported % V. Pacing overestimated effective CRT by 3%. 3 out of 57 patients had virtually no effective pacing, whereas the % V pacing was > 90%, as demonstrated in the graph below.5
