Abstract:For the purpose of examining the clinical exchange indication 96 removed Demand-pacemakers (type Medtronic 5842, 5843, 5942, 5943) had been sujected to a functional test by the manufacturers. After a service-life from 31-45 months 71% (i.e. 42 out of 59 units) and, in the group with a service-life from 31-35 months, 66% (i.e. 33 out of 51 units) of pacemaker units removed at that time were still working regularly. The mean energy loss exceeded 70% with a simultaneous mean drop of the output voltage down to 2.5… Show more
