Vitatron E Series
Vitatron’s E-series is built on the success of a company that’s dedicated to leading-edge technology without ever compromising the service, relationship and responsiveness you’ve experienced for over 50 years.
The E-series offers the new standard of care – an array of diagnostics, data and therapy for early detection, prevention and ongoing management of atria arrhythmias. Yet these high-tech pacemakers don’t mean high complexity. Vitatron's E-series is smart and easy.
The E-series does things like searches for your patient's natural intrinsic conduction and reduces unnecessary ventricular pacing when possible. And it responds to your patient’s activity level with an appropriate rate whether they’re exercising or eating lunch.
RVP+ Reduces Unnecessary RV Pacing To Less Than 20%1
Reduced Ventricular Pacing+ (RVP+) reduces unnecessary RV pacing to less than 20%.1 This is essential to your patients because minimizing unnecessary RV pacing reduces the risk of AF, heart failure hospitalization and mortality.2-4
- The new standard of care in pacing is to reduce unnecessary right ventricular pacing to a minimum5
- Every incremental 1% of unnecessary RV pacing increases the risk of AF by 1% and the risk of heart
failure hospitalization (HFH) by 5.4%2
- Atrial fibrillation is associated with significant morbidity, mortality and cost. ADD/AHA/ESC Guidelines for managing AF recommend aggressive treatment to help prevent stroke5
The Solution – RVP+
- Continuously searches for your patient's natural intrinsic conduction
- Quickly optimizes the AF delays relative to changes in your patient's PR intervals
- Allows the AV delay to be extended up to 600 ms, thus maximizing conduction
Smarter Rate Response Lets You Customize Two Independent Set Points for Rate
A dual slope rate response allows you to independently customize the rate response for activities ranging from reading a book to running a marathon.
Rate Profile Optimization analyses the activity level of your patient and optimizes the rate response set points and target rates. This helps to achieve the appropriate rate support for both high exertion activities and those of daily living.
The E-series makes state-of-the-art pacemaker technology easy with automatic features and built-in tools to simplify your clinic follow-ups.
Ventricular Output Management Improves Patient Safety – Automatically
The E-series pacemaker regularly measures thresholds and adapts pacing outputs to a safe level, even when your patient's condition changes. And it all happens completely automatically.
- Provides long-term threshold trends
- Actively manages battery drain
- Proven safe, simple and accurate6
E-Series longevity is increased to 8% with output management and RVP+7
Your Patient's Device Is Automatically Checked Every Day
- Lead impedance
- Battery status
- Atrial and ventricular threshold evaluation
Cardiac Dashboard II Gives You the Full Picture on a Single Screen
Now you can spend more time with your patient and less time with the device. Cardiac Dashboard II simplifies your clinic follow-ups by showing the full picture on a single screen.
After interrogating the device, the first screen you'll see provides the most significant information for your follow-up – a concise overview of relevant clinical and device data for your patient.
- Clinical areas of concern
- AT/AF summary
- High-rate episode data
- Longevity status
- Ventricular thresholds
- Lead impedance
