Testers, Implantable Defibrillator/Cardioverter
Definition : Testers designed to assess the performance of implantable cardioverter/defibrillators (ICDs). These testers can evaluate, monitor, and/or record a set of implantable cardioverter/defibrillator parameters and/or waveforms, such as the electrocardiographic signals from implanted ICD leads, the patient's defibrillation/cardioversion energy threshold, and display electric cardiac signals during arrhythmia induction. These testers are typically an electronic unit including a digital display, measuring (e.g., energy, voltage, time) devices, a pulse generator, and appropriate sensors. Implantable cardioverter/defibrillator testers are mainly used for electrophysiology laboratory tests, intraoperatively during ICD implantation procedures, and to evaluate ICDs before implantation.
