614 results about "Left ventricular size" patented technology

The mass of the left ventricle, as estimated by magnetic resonance imaging, averages 143 g ± 38.4 g, with a range of 87––224 g. The right ventricle is equal in size to that of the left ventricle, and contains roughly 85 millilitres (3 imp fl oz; 3 US fl oz) in the adult.

System and method for tracking progression of left ventricular dysfunction using implantable cardiac stimulation device

InactiveUS6922587B2Accurate and reliable assessmentAlter heart contractilityHeart stimulatorsPost extrasystolic potentiationCardiac pacemaker electrode
The progression or regression of left ventricular dysfunction (LVD) is automatically evaluated by a pacemaker or other implantable cardiac stimulation device by tracking changes in the resting sinus rate of the patient in which the device is implanted. The resting sinus rate is detected by first determining whether the patient is in a state of profound rest, such as sleep, then measuring the actual sinus rate during profound rest. Profound rest may be detected by using an activity variance sensor. An increase in the profound rest sinus rate over a period of several months indicates progression of LVD; whereas a decrease indicates regression. Appropriate LVD diagnostic information is recorded for subsequent review by a physician. Based on the progression or regression of LVD, the physician may then modify LVD drug therapy administered to the patient or may adjust control parameters of the pacemaker, such as overdrive pacing control parameters or control parameters affecting heart contractility via post-extrasystolic potentiation. If a drug pump is implanted within the patient for automatically delivering LVD drug therapy, the pacemaker controls the drug pump in view of any detected progression or regression of LVD. The technique may also be used to verify the efficacy of LVD drug therapy administered to the patient, whether delivered via an implanted drug pump or otherwise. Processing may be primarily performed within the implanted device itself or with an external programmer in communication with the implanted device. Activity state-based LVD tracking techniques are also set forth.
