This release launches on May 21st, 2018 and brings exciting new features to enhance your workflow including:

  • Two new Yellow alerts
    • Antitachycardia pacing (ATP) therapy delivered to convert arrhythmia which is nominally ON in LATITUDE NXT
      • After launch, episode(s) where ATP was delivered since the last counter reset will upload alert(s).  After these alerts are uploaded only new alerts will be sent.
    • Nonsustained ventricular arrhythmia episode(s) which is nominally OFF in LATITUDE NXT

For a tour of the new enhancements please watch this short video:
This release requires a firmware update for all Communicators.  The upgrade should not be visible for most active patients but will be seen if patients are setting up their Communicator for the first time.  Patients with an EMBLEM S-ICD may notice a flashing yellow LATITUDE light indicating the firmware is being installed.
