Accent™ Pacemaker

This device is commercially available for use in select international markets.

Wireless, Intelligent Monitoring For
Simplified Patient Management

The Accent RF pacemaker is the first to simplify patient management—from implant through follow-up—with wireless monitoring. With the intelligence to sense and automatically adjust device parameters, the Accent RF device, a wireless monitoring pacemaker, is designed to maintain effective therapy and enhance patient safety.
Overview

The Accent RF pacemaker provides intelligent sensing and adjustment of selected device parameters and remote* monitoring to help streamline follow-ups, simplify therapy optimization and enhance clinic efficiency.

Streamlined Follow-ups

Wireless, remote* patient monitoring automatically provides key diagnostic information.

  • RF device interrogations with InvisiLink™ Wireless Telemetry are more than three times faster than inductive1
  • Remote* follow-up can be scheduled to take place automatically, with no patient interaction required
  • Daily automatic measurements may eliminate the need for in-clinic testing

Accent Pacemaker Daily Auto Measurements

Intelligent Optimization

Simple solutions deliver optimal therapy based on patient needs.

  • New AT/AF alerts and proven AF Suppression™** technology provide comprehensive atrial arrhythmia monitoring and suppression
  • QuickOpt™ Timing Cycle Optimization** provides quick and effective AV optimization at the touch of a button
  • Ventricular Intrinsic Preference (VIP™)** is proven2 to reduce unnecessary RV pacing—which has been shown to reduce the risk of heart failure3,4—while supporting the ventricle for every non-conducted beat

Enhanced Safety and Reliability

Designed to provide earlier detection of clinical events.

  • Remote* alerts can be provided through the Merlin.net™ Patient Care Network, enabling earlier notification of changes in patients’ clinical status
  • Programmable audible alerts can notify patients to changes in their arrhythmia or device status
  • Industry-leading longevity of 9 years (Dual-Chamber RF) and 12.9 years (Single-Chamber RF)—with stored electrograms turned on—backed by a seven-year warranty
  • Multiple hardware and software system safeguards ensure therapy delivery, even in the unlikely event of individual component failures

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions for Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use. Devices depicted may not be available in all countries. Check with your St. Jude Medical representative for product availability in your country.

Indications: Implantation is indicated in one or more of the following permanent conditions: syncope, presyncope, fatigue, disorientation due to arrhythmia/bradycardia or any combination of those symptoms. Rate-Modulated Pacing is indicated for patients with chronotropic incompetence, and for those who would benefit from increased stimulation rates concurrent with physical activity. Dual-Chamber Pacing is indicated for those patients exhibiting: sick sinus syndrome, chronic, symptomatic second- and third-degree AV block, recurrent Adams-Stokes syndrome, symptomatic bilateral bundle branch block when tachyarrhythmia and other causes have been ruled out. Atrial Pacing is indicated for patients with sinus node dysfunction and normal AV and intraventricular conduction systems. Ventricular Pacing is indicated for patients with significant bradycardia and normal sinus rhythm with only rare episodes of A-V block or sinus arrest, chronic atrial fibrillation, severe physical disability. AF Suppression algorithm is indicated for suppression of paroxysmal or persistent atrial fibrillation episodes in patients with one or more of the above pacing indications.

Contraindications: Dual-chamber pulse generators are contraindicated in patients with an implanted cardioverter-defibrillator. Rate-Adaptive Pacing may be inappropriate for patients who experience angina or other symptoms of myocardial dysfunction at higher sensor-driven rates. An appropriate Maximum Sensor Rate should be selected based on assessment of the highest stimulation rate tolerated by the patient. AF Suppression stimulation is not recommended in patients who cannot tolerate high atrial-rate stimulation. Dual-Chamber Pacing, though not contraindicated for patients with chronic atrial flutter, chronic atrial fibrillation or silent atria, may provide no benefit beyond that of single-chamber pacing in such patients. Single-Chamber Ventricular Demand Pacing is relatively contraindicated in patients who have demonstrated pacemaker syndrome, have retrograde VA conduction or suffer a drop in arterial blood pressure with the onset of ventricular pacing. Single-Chamber Atrial Pacing is relatively contraindicated in patients who have demonstrated compromise of AV conduction.

Potential Adverse Events: The following are potential complications associated with the use of any pacing system: arrhythmia, heart block, thrombosis, threshold elevation, valve damage, pneumothorax, myopotential sensing, vessel damage, air embolism, body rejection phenomena, cardiac tamponade or perforation, formation of fibrotic tissue/local tissue reaction, inability to interrogate or program a device because of programmer malfunction, infection, interruption of desired device function due to electrical interference, loss of desired pacing and/or sensing due to lead displacement, body reaction at electrode interface or lead malfunction (fracture or damage to insulation), loss of normal device function due to battery failure or component malfunction, device migration, pocket erosion or hematoma, pectoral muscle stimulation, phrenic nerve or diaphragmatic stimulation. The following, in addition to the above, are potential complications associated with the use of rate-modulated pacing systems: inappropriate, rapid pacing rates due to sensor failure or to the detection of signals other than patient activity, loss of activity-response due to sensor failure, palpitations with high-rate pacing.

Refer to the User’s Manual for detailed indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and potential adverse events.
