Conference paper


Atrioventricular crosstalk in dual chamber pacemakers is when the atrial stimulus is sensed by the ventricular sensing amplifier, leading to inhibition of ventricular output [1]. With atrioventricular (AV) crosstalk, for example, a 5 V stimulus from the atrial channel might be sensed as a small (0.3 V) artefact by the QRS detector (Fig. 1).
