Atrial Fibrillation (AF) can spontaneously organize to slower and/or more organized atrial rhythms. The Reactive ATP™ (rATP) algorithm delivers atrial antitachycardia pacing (ATP) to terminate an ongoing atrial fibrillation (AF) episode after a programmed interval or when the rhythm organizes and/or slows.

The Reactive ATP algorithm studied in the MINERVA trial is available in our dual chamber pacemakers and ICDs, as well as our CRT-Ds and CRT-Ps.
Reactive ATP was referred to as 'aATP' in the MINERVA trial
Model components included group, age, sex, baseline AF, and device type. Frailty model results were consistent with those from Cox proportional hazard models (P< 0.0001 for all).
Follow these steps to turn Reactive ATP on in pacemaker, implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices after lead maturation.
