Kardiales Monitoring mit Hilfe implantierbarer Systeme

by Theres, Heinz Peter

Abstract (Summary)
Mikroprocessor controlled implantable systems are standard in many medical specialities. Physiological parameters can be recorded, stored and transfered via telemetry systems. In addition different therapeutic options are available: neurostimulation to treat patients with refractory pain and morbus parkinson, drug pumps for infusion of insulin etc.. Cardiac pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators were the driving force in the development of implantable sensors. We investigated different physiological cardiac parameters via implantable sensors. In this paper we discuss basic technical aspects, sensors, signal conditioning and signal analysis. The spectrum of available implantable sensors is shown. New options like the monitoring of transient myocardial ischemia are presented.
