S-ICD System

Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator

Insight Algorithm

Phase I Detection

The DETECTION phase filters the Subcutaneous (S-ECG) signal and generates detections for further analysis. 
A variety of profiles are used for detection of signals. 

Phase II Certification

The CERTIFICATION phase analyses the detected events and classifies them as cardiac or noise. 
Four algorithms are used to identify oversensing and ensure an accurate heart rate.

Phase III Therapy Decision

During the Therapy Decision phase, the INSIGHT algorithm discriminates between treatable and other high-rate events such as AF, sinus tachycardia, and other SVTs, helping to avoid inappropriate therapy. The Conditional and Shock Zone settings are programmable.
