Why Screen Patients For the S-ICD?
- To determine whether patients have a suitable signal for device sensing at implant.
- To maximise system sensitivity and specificity for rhythm identification and therapy, and to minimise risk of cardiac oversensing.
Validation of Automated Screening Tool performance
Automated Screening Tool is 24%* more likely to predict the performance of Vector Select than the Manual Screening Tool1
Due to incorporation of Vector Select and digital filtering, Automated Screening Tool is expected to:
- Better reflect S-ICD function and to be more tolerant of large T-waves than Manual Screening Tool1
- Provide more consistent outcomes by removing operator subjectivity
