Our Vision Access to Communication for Everyone. Our Mission ACE is a key link between people who are Deaf, hard of hearing, communication impaired and the hearing. We are united by our determination that people who are Deaf, hard of hearing, or communication impaired will have access to telecommunications of their choice. At ACE we will achieve this by providing world-class telecommunication services and facilitating necessary progress to meet changing needs.
Jude Medical has a strong history of product safety and reliability, and we remain dedicated to developing technology and products that Communication letter and improve the lives of patients worldwide.
We take our responsibilities as a leading manufacturer of cardiac rhythm management devices very seriously and recognize our primary responsibility as a global medical device manufacturer is to ensure that our devices are of the highest quality and function safely and properly. Product performance As part of our commitment to quality, we keep medical professionals and their patients informed on the performance of our devices.
Jude Medical releases a semi-annual report detailing overall performance and reliability of its Cardiac Rhythm Management products.
Current and Archived Product Performance Reports. The new programmer software version 6. The programmer will complete the device upgrade in approximately seconds. During the upgrade process the device continues to function as programmed, with all bradycardia and tachycardia functions fully available.
ApproximatelyEpic and Atlas family ICDs have been implanted worldwide since July ; approximatelyof these devices remain in service. To date, 8 out ofof the subject device population an incidence of 0. The loss of ventricular sensing has been attributed to a well defined, yet extremely rare timing sequence that occurs in a very small 61 microsecond timing window.
No patient injuries or deaths have been reported to St. Jude Medical as the result of a device entering the described loss of sensing state.
As mentioned above, the potential issue can be fully resolved and eliminated by a programmer initiated upgrade to the device. Patients who are followed on a routine basis with scheduled follow-up visits every three to six months should continue with their scheduled visit.
Upon interrogation of one of the subject devices, the Merlin and Model programmers with the newly provided software will automatically identify a device that can benefit from a firmware upgrade and will instruct the clinician that an upgrade is available.
Jude Medical along with our independent Medical Advisory board members have determined that no other action is recommended. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this topic in greater detail, please do not hesitate to contact your local Sales Representative or Technical Services at Please see the attached document for specific details.
As always, please feel free to contact me, your St. Jude Medical representative, or any member of the St. Jude Medical team with any additional questions or concerns. Jude Medical has reviewed incident reports on specific older generation pacemaker models exposed to electrocautery.
The duration of the effect depends on several factors including the battery voltage of the device, the energy of the electrocautery output, and the distance from the electrocautery source to the implanted system. The most clinically significant observation has been loss of capture due to a transient reduction in the pacing output voltage.
Placing a magnet over the device or programming to an asynchronous pacing mode will not prevent this temporary reduction in pacing output. If pacemaker dependency is identified, either do not use electrocautery or employ appropriate precautions to ensure that the heart rate will be supported in the presence of electrocautery.
Consideration of placing a temporary transvenous pacemaker is appropriate. Importantly, the more recent families of St. If you have any questions, regarding the information provided, please contact your St.
