Fewer inappropriate shocks with PARAD+
PARAD+ analyzes arrhythmias as an electrophysiologist would.
Protects patients with best-in-class 99% SVT specificity1
- Only 2.6% of patients received inappropriate shocks at 1 year with PARAD+ out of the box settings2
A full suite of antishock features
The longest experience on dual chamber arrhythmia discrimination
Efficient Resynchronization for active patients with BTO (Brady-Tachy Overlap)
BTO ensures pacing at exercise rate while allowing unmatched accuracy for slow VT discrimination3.4
- Allows patients to be paced in the slow VT zone to favor exercise. Exercise training is part of the treatment of HF patients, reducing mortality and improving QoL5,6
