 Heart Care Devices Approved

Medtronic's Consulta and Syncra cardiac resynchronization therapy-pacemakers (CRT-P) have been approved by the FDA to be introduced in the US market.

Medtronic has pioneered these devices that would help monitor remotely and assist heart patients before their problem becomes serious. Consulta has Medtronic's OptiVol® Fluid Status Monitoring which helps in alerting at-risk patients about heart failure even before they experience symptoms. Both Consulta and Syncra have Leadless ECG Waveform, and these with the Medtronic CareLink® Network device data monitoring system, monitor heart failure patients using these devices. Both systems prevent the need for surgery for they avoid phrenic nerve stimulation.

While both devices use the same technology, Consulta has both Medtronic's exclusive OptiVol Fluid Status Monitoring, as well as Complete Capture Management™, which monitors and adjusts to patient needs automatically and can positively impact device longevity and reduce in-office testing.

OptiVol measures intrathoracic impedance in heart failure patients through monitoring the level of resistance to low electrical pulses, which indicates the patient's fluid levels.

Complete Capture Management automatically adjusts the pace of the device to changing patient physiologic needs. It also helps clinicians to get rid of certain manual checks.

With the launching of these sophisticated devices, heart health care becomes more accessible and manageable.
