Identity ADx Pacemaker from St. Jude Medical

The Identity ADx pacemaker family, which includes the world's smallest dual-chamber pacemaker, provides clinicians with the most advanced pacemaker technology available, including the revolutionary AF Suppression™ algorithm, the first and only U.S. commercially approved algorithm designed to suppress atrial fibrillation (AF). The AF Suppression algorithm in the Identity ADx pacemaker family is combined with the most advanced diagnostic systems and bradycardia feature set available today, establishing the Identity ADx pacemaker as the premier product offering in advanced arrhythmia care.

The Identity ADx pacemakers feature AF management, a suite of therapeutic and diagnostic capabilities designed to help manage pacemaker patients suffering from AF. This tool kit includes:

  • AT/AF Diagnostic Suite - AT/AF Burden Trend, AT/AF Stored EGM trigger, AT/AF Histogram, and AT/AF Episode Log
  • AF Suppression Algorithm - Clinically proven and designed to suppress AF before it happens
  • AF Suppression Histogram - Allows you to evaluate the success of the AF suppression algorithm
  • Stored Electrograms (EGMs) - Provides a comprehensive overview of patient-device interactions, especially high atrial rate activity
  • Auto Mode Switch (AMS) Log - Stores rate and duration information for mode switch episodes
  • Ventricular Rate Control - Separately programmable AMS base rate for improved patient comfort
  • Physician Commanded Atrial Therapy (NIPS - Non-Invasive Programmed Stimulation) - Provides the clinician with another option for the treatment of atrial arrhythmias

The Identity ADx pacemaker family also encompasses the most advanced bradycardia feature set, including the exclusive ventricular AutoCapture™ Pacing Systems, assuring Beat-by-Beat™ capture verification and a projected longevity of 12.3 years.1

Other features available in the Identity ADx pacemaker family include:

  • Advanced Hysteresis Response - Manages special rate situations including abrupt rate drop
  • Automatic P & R Wave Measurements - Provides accuracy and speed in follow-up
  • Omnisense® Accelerometer Sensor - Provides appropriate and prompt rate response for your patient's activity level
  • Auto Rest Rate - Provides patient comfort during periods of inactivity and rest
  • Cross Sensor AMS - Offers cross sensor mode switching (such as DDDR to DDI) when sensor is programmed on
  • FastPath™ Programmer Software - The FastPath summary screen provides one-step access to and from all diagnostics and tests. FastPath programmer software also includes several programmer speed enhancements.
  • Onscreen Help - Offers the option of viewing the software reference manuals on the programmer by selecting the Help button on the programmer console
  • Previous Test Results - Records the results from the last sense or capture test in the pacemaker's memory
  • Remaining Longevity Estimate - Gives an estimate of the remaining life of the device
