EMBLEM S-ICD INSIGHT™ Technology
The SUBCUTANEOUS SIGNAL
The EMBLEM S-ICD System uses a revolutionary approach to sensing, different from transvenous systems:
Far-field sensing allows the EMBLEM S-ICD System to capture a high-resolution signal similar to a surface ECG.
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, including the new SMART Pass filter which is used to further reduce cardiac oversensing.
PHASE II - Certification
The CERTIFICATION phase analyses the detected events and classifies them as cardiac or noise. Four separate algorithms are used to prevent 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.
