Heart Rhythm Society Introduced to New Method for Optimizing Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy During Exercise
Date:5/22/2009

Heart Rhythm Society Introduced to New Method for Optimizing Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy During Exercise. The new FDA-approved Shape-HF™ Cardiopulmonary Testing System "can make a dramatic difference in treating CRT patients." Dr. Abraham Kocheril, Professor of Medicine and Director of Clinical Electrophysiology at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) May 22, 2009 -- Speaking to a group of approximately 300 top electrophysiologists, Dean MacCarter, Ph.D., Vice President Clinical Affairs for Shape Medical Systems, Inc., introduced a new, patented method for optimizing therapy in patients with implanted cardiac resynchronization pacemakers at the Heart Rhythm Society's 30th Annual Scientific Meeting May 13-16 in Boston, MA. This new method involves using the Shape-HF™ Cardiopulmonary Testing System to measure changes in patient breathing efficiency as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) settings are adjusted. In this way, physicians are able to assess the physiological effect of therapy in real time while the patient is exercising at a level consistent with normal daily activity.

CRT is used in severe cases of heart failure to restore synchrony between the heart chambers--the atria and two ventricles--during the heart beat. In patients with advanced heart failure the heart may not beat strongly enough to supply adequate oxygen to peripheral tissues, and poor blood flow to the lungs disrupts the process of exchanging needed oxygen for carbon dioxide, a waste product of normal metabolism. Combined, these effects lower the amount of oxygen in the blood, which decreases the patient's ability to exercise and causes inefficient, labored breathing."Shortness of breath on even mild exertion is a
