The temporary pacemaker must be used in an environment where the patient is monitored continuously to ensure that it is operating properly and delivering appropriate therapy to the patient. Temporary pacemaker connector block 4. The letter was addressed to Risk Manager or Health Care Professional. The pacing lead system may cease to function at any time due to improper connections or lead-related problems such as displacement or fracture. Medtronic cardiac devices are designed to withstand exposure to ablation energy. If you are located in the United States, please view the information below.
Connect the temporary pacemaker to the patient lead system. Navigate to the Mode Selection menu and select the appropriate pacing mode for the patient leads that are connected to the patient. Extreme caution must be taken to properly ground all line-powered equipment used in the vicinity of the patient. Defibrillation equipment should be kept immediately available during high-rate pacing. Pacing modes which allow sensing in the atrium to trigger a ventricular response are contraindicated in the presence of rapid atrial arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. The device functionality and programming described on this site are based on Medtronic products and can be referenced in the. Model 5392 Dual Chamber Temporary Pacemaker Intended Use The Medtronic Model 5392 dual chamber temporary pacemaker is intended to be used in conjunction with a cardiac pacing lead system for temporary single or dual chamber pacing in a clinical environment by trained personnel.
TrackingOff or On, perform the following steps: 1. Do not modify the temporary pacemaker. Potential complications related to the use of pacing lead systems with the temporary pacemaker include, but are not limited to myocardial irritability resulting in fibrillation, infarction, pericarditis, rejection, muscle and nerve stimulation, and infection. The upper screen displays a numerical value and segmented circular scale that reflects the current setting for each dial. Tracking is turned On, the temporary pacemaker paces the ventricle in synchrony with intrinsic atrial depolarizations.
The temporary pacemaker does not turn on when batteries are installed with incorrect polarity. Any information on how to perform these tests on a Medtronic 5392 external pacemaker would be greatly appreciated. It also features an improved low battery indicator. Do not modify the temporary pacemaker. Contact your Medtronic representative to schedule training.
Mode Selection menu The Pacing Mode indicator in the upper screen displays the selected mode. Pierre and Miquelon,Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Viet Nam, and Yemen. Navigate to the Pacing Parameters menu. For many patients, the issue can be resolved temporarily by having a doctor program the device to one of 15 modes that are not susceptible to the problem. . Bipolar lead systems may exhibit different threshold values depending on the polarity of the lead connections.
See device manuals for the accepted patient conditions warranting chronic cardiac pacing. Complication related to inhibition or reversion of the pacemaker in the presence of strong electromagnetic interference. This value is set by the output control and does not vary. Plug the patient cables or a pair of surgical cables into appropriate sockets on the connector block on top of the temporary pacemaker. On Current Drain with backlight and lower screen off 5.
Navigate to the Pacing Parameters menu. Also the old current drain test device used with the fluke sigma pace no longer works, 3. Loss of atrial capture 200 ms Figure 56. The Adapta pacemaker offers managed ventricular pacing, atrial therapy, ventricular capture, and remote cardiac telemetry. A lead with extension cable constitutes a direct, low-resistance current path to the myocardium.
Medtronic recommends use of the Model 53922 Disposable Cover to reduce the risk of tampering with the programmed parameters. It is possible that some of the products on the other site not be licensed for sale in Canada. Do not place transthoracic defibrillation paddles directly over the device. Medtronic does not recommend replacing the batteries while the pacemaker is turned on or actively pacing the patient. The pacing lead system may cease to function at any time due to improper connections or lead-related problems such as displacement or fracture. Electrosurgical units can cause tachyarrhythmias by inducing current on the leads. Potential lead complications include, but are not limited to, valve damage, fibrillation, thrombosis, thrombotic and air embolism, cardiac perforation, heart wall rupture, cardiac tamponade, pericardial rub, infection, myocardial irritability, and pneumothorax.
Scale segments appear, showing where the parameter is set within the available range. Set A Sensitivity and V Sensitivity to values that are at least one-half to one-third of the sensing threshold values. I still think it is relevent. Potential complications related to the use of pacing lead systems with the Model 5392 include, but are not limited to, myocardial irritability resulting in fibrillation, infarction, pericarditis, rejection, muscle and nerve stimulation, and infection. It has enhanced user interface with improved visibility and increased responsiveness. Medtronic is not recommending doctors remove the devices from their patients prophylactically, but in some cases, individual circumstances may warrant a replacement.
