The efficacy of cardiac resynchronization treatment (CRT) via biventricular pacing (BVP) has been validated through a number of stories in sufferers struggling with congestive middle failure. with the intention to in attaining a suggestion for optimum remedy with BVP units, an automatic non-invasive process in accordance with an electrophysiological machine version of the center is gifted. The offered learn investigates an off-line optimization set of rules according to various electrode positioning and timing delays.

Using more leads results in higher spatial resolution, which provides a widespread three dimensional view of cardiac electrical activity. This can be useful in order to solve the inverse problem for setting the patient heart model parameters in which a high correlation between measured and simulated BSPM could be achieved. A multichannel recording system for biopotential measurements as EEG signals and furthermore ECG signals could be applied to measure the BSPM. 2. 24) [164, 165]. 1. 9. 2. Six precordial leads: six unipolar precordial leads of Wilson could be determined through electrodes A7, B5, B18, C6, C18 and A2.

Biventricular Pacing 47 in the coronary sinus [264]. The optimal site for left ventricular pacing is in the lateral or posterolateral cardiac vein, while pacing from the mid lateral wall or posterior wall results in a raise in pulse pressure and left ventricular dP /dt [295]. However, if there is not enough time to carry out the pacing procedure, a stable position is not achievable. Therefore in these cases, the lead is positioned in the anterior great cardiac vein. Once the left ventricular lead is secured, the right ventricular apex lead and right atrial lead are then implanted in the usual manner for a dual chamber pacemaker.

Secondly to determine the CRT efficacy for the LV lead position in the segment selected according to its greatest mechanical delay. The study demonstrates a relative simple approach to determine the LV position based on a detailed analysis of the myocardial contraction sequence before and on CRT. The LV lead position determined by circumferential strain analysis was found to be in high agreement with the anatomical LV lead position defined by fluoroscopy. A great reduction of QRS duration has been demonstrated to be an electrical marker of optimal CRT pacing [155].
