Visia AF™ and Visia AF MRI™ are the only single chamber ICDs with a traditional lead that enable you to continuously monitor, diagnose, and manage atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. Ensure your patients get 1.5T and 3T MRI access with Visia AF MRI, when MR conditions for use are met.
The Need for AF Diagnostics in Single Chamber ICDs
20% of single chamber ICD patients may also develop new onset AF within the first two years post-implant1
AF increases the risk of stroke by up to 5x2
AF increases the risk of heart failure by 3x3
79-94% of AF episodes are asymptomatic4-9
68% of AT/AF episodes are missed with annual Holter monitoring9
Novel AF Detection
Atrial Fibrillation can conduct into the ventricle resulting in a variable heart rate, which can lead to variability in the timing of the R waves. Visia AF and Visia AF MRI monitor R-R variability and look for patterns, then determine if the variability and pattern are sufficient to meet the classification of AF.
