Abstract

Closed loop stimulation (CLS) is the algorithm implemented in the INOS2+ (Biotronik, Germany) pacemaker to perform rate modulation in dual or single chamber pacing. CLS is driven by a “virtual sensor” that detects the variations in intracardiac impedance during the systolic phase of right ventricular contraction [1,2].
