Up to 42% of your pacemaker patients
suffer from chronotropic incompetence (CI)1.
Now you can help them!

Chronotropic incompetence is defined as the inability of the heart to regulate its rate appropriately in response to physiologic stress. It is a progressive cardiac disease and worsens over a short period of time2.

In general, if chronotropic incompetence is symptomatic, i.e. the patient suffers from fatigue, shortness of breath or the like, the only treatment is a pacemaker with a rate response sensor. Boston Scientific uses a clinically proven MV blended sensor to restore chronotropic incompetence3.

"He is telling: Boy, I really feel good, I wonder what they did to me this time! That really feels great, what I can do know, shakes a leg and boy, I didn't feel this good for a long time.."
Dave Peterson's partner

Partners of pacemaker patients do sometimes better notice the effects of chronotropic incompetence than the patients themselves.

Dave Peterson’s wife clearly noticed he has significantly been slowing down with the old pacemaker. Now he really feels good again since his chronotropic response is restored with an ALTRUA™ pacemaker with MV blended sensor.
