Product Details

Models D020, D021, D022, and D023

  • The world’s smallest and thinnest2 high-energy ICD designed to enhance patient comfort.

  • Includes the new EasyView™ header with color coded lead ports, designed to improve implant efficiency.

  • Offers an uncompromised set of features including:

- An advanced system solution for patient comorbidities and HF monitoring (HF Perspectiv™ report, LATITUDE™ NXT Remote Patient Management* enabled with weight scale and blood pressure sensors, and Respiratory Rate Trend).

- AcuShock™ Advanced Technology, multiple programmable options to reduce inappropriate and unnecessary shocks, including a choice of rhythm discriminators, antitachycardia pacing (ATP) therapy in all rates zones, and advanced sensing and filtering.

- RhythmID™ with RhythmMatch™ feature to allow customization of Rhythm ID algorithm to reduce inappropriate shocks.

- AV Search+ and RYTHMIQ™ which gives clinicians options to appropriately manage RV pacing in patients with varying degrees of conduction block.

- Wireless ECG to save time and simplify follow-up.

- SafetyCore™ technology intended to provide lifesaving shock therapy and basic pacing functionality in the event of an unrecoverable fault.

Pulse Generator Projected Longevity (All DYNAGEN MINI ICD Models a,b,c,d)

  Longevity (years) at 500Ω, 700Ω, and 900Ω Pacing Impedance (RV)
  500Ω 700Ω 900Ω
0% 5.5 5.3 5.5 5.3 5.5 5.3
15% 5.4 5.1 5.4 5.1 5.5 5.1
50% 5.2 4.7 5.3 4.7 5.3 4.8
100% 4.9 4.2 5.0 4.3 5.1 4.4
a Assumes ZIP™ telemetry use for 1 hour at implant time and for 40 minutes annually for in-clinic follow-up checks.
b Assumes standard use of the LATITUDE™ Communicator as follows: Daily Device Check on, monthly Full Interrogations (scheduled remote follow ups, and quarterly patient-interrogations).
c Assumes 60 bpm LRL, ventricular and atrial settings of 2.5 V pacing pulse Amplitude and 0.4 ms pacing pulse width; RA Impedance 500 ; sensors On.
d Projected longevity is calculated assuming 3 maximum energy charging cycles per year, including automatic capacitor re-forms and therapeutic shocks. For the final year of device service, an additional 5 charging cycles
are assumed to account for additional automatic capacitor re-forms as the device approaches the Explant indicator. These calculations also assume 3-channel EGM Onset is set to On,and that the pulse generator spends
6 months in Storage mode during shipping and storage.

Longevity Information

  • For longevity calculations based on different settings please contact Boston Scientific technical services or your local representative.

  • Boston Scientific devices have a limited product warranty of 5 years (VR and DR) in available geographies. See www.bostonscientific.com/cardiac-rhythm-resources for complete warranty terms and conditions.

  • Devices use Li/MnO2 battery chemistry.

  • The usable battery capacity is 1.0 Amp-hours for the MINI ICD (typical implant to battery capacity depleted).

  • Shelf life is 2 years (before use by date).

Longevity projections as provided in the product labeling. Specific programmable parameter ranges available in product labeling. Product labeling available at http://www.BostonScientific/cardiac-rhythm-resources/instructions for use.html
