Evaluating and testing cardiac electrical devices in a closed-physiologic-loop can help design safety, but this is rarely practical or comprehensive. Furthermore, in-silico closed-loop testing with biophysical computer models cannot meet the requirements of time-critical cardiac device systems, while simplified models meeting time-critical requirements may not have the necessary dynamic features. We propose a new high-level (abstracted) physiologically-based computational heart model that is time-critical and dynamic.

The influence of age on the psychological profile of patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices: results from the Italian population in a multicenter study conducted by the European Heart Rhythm Association.
Cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are widely used to treat bradyarrhythmias or improve the prognosis of patients with heart failure (HF).
Patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) were traditionally denied access to MR imaging due to safety concerns.
The implantable loop recorder (ILR), also known as insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) is a subcutaneous device used for diagnosing heart rhythm disorders. These devices have been strongly improved and m...
Knowledge-based planning (KBP) clinical implementation necessitates significant up-front effort even within a single disease site. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate an efficient method for ...
Atrial high rate episodes (AHREs) detected by cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are associated with an increased risk of stroke. However, the impact of AHRE on improving stroke risk strat...
The implantable device therapy for cardiac arrhythmias has been an established therapy, and one of the common standard procedures in cardiac clinical practice. Pacemakers, implantable car...
This protocol outlines a prospective study evaluating safety and clinical outcomes of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations performed on patients with cardiac implantable electrica...
Compare closed-loop with open-loop application of TES to enhance slow waves of sleep.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility, efficay and safety of a novel closed-loop (automated) vasopressor administration system that delivers norepinephrine using feedbac...
The study assesses the effect of Closed Loop Stimulation (CLS) on the ventilatory efficiency slope and estimates the patient responder rate to CLS in patients with severe chronotropic inco...
Types of artificial pacemakers with implantable leads to be placed at multiple intracardial sites. They are used to treat various cardiac conduction disturbances which interfere with the timing of contraction of the ventricles. They may or may not include defibrillating electrodes (IMPLANTABLE DEFIBRILLATORS) as well.
Portable or implantable devices for infusion of insulin. Includes open-loop systems which may be patient-operated or controlled by a pre-set program and are designed for constant delivery of small quantities of insulin, increased during food ingestion, and closed-loop systems which deliver quantities of insulin automatically based on an electronic glucose sensor.
Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.
Methods to induce and measure electrical activities at specific sites in the heart to diagnose and treat problems with the heart's electrical system.
A class of devices combining electrical and mechanical components that have at least one of the dimensions in the micrometer range (between 1 micron and 1 millimeter). They include sensors, actuators, microducts, and micropumps.
