Haemodynamic Sensors: What is Their Role in Monitoring Heart Function?
For many years implantable devices for cardiac pacing applications have been developed with the main aim of treating AV block and sinus node dysfunction. With the introduction of rate-responsive pacing in 1983, different kinds of sensors have been developed, clinically validated and introduced into the clinical practice for driving rate adaptive pacemakers.
