PACE 203

Dual Chamber (DDD) Temporary Cardiac Pacemaker
Product Description: 

The PACE 203™ is the third generation of the Cardiotronic line of dual-chamber temporary cardiac pacemakers, designed for safe and dependable temporary stimulation of the heart for peri/post-operative pacing and/or therapy for conduction defects and rhythm disturbances. Relying on over 25 years of experience in cardiac pacing, the PACE 203 represents today's standard in temporary pacing technology.

The advanced technology and features of the PACE 203 make it the ideal choice for dual chamber temporary pacing in the OR or ICU:

  • Superior processing speed
  • Extended battery life
  • Stimulation rate of up to 220 ppm
  • Rapid atrial pacing rate up to 1000 ppm for managing atrial tachyarrhythmias

Intuitive User Interface

The intuitive dial interface allows programming AV delay or atrial/ventricular sensitivities through only one touch compared to the three key presses needed for the Medtronic Model 5388. Clinicians can now select new parameters using the PACE 203 with just a simple twist of a dial, instead of repeated button pressing required for the Medtronic device.

By one push of a button, the PACE 203 can temporarily pause pacing to automatically measure and display the patient’s intrinsic heart activity, including atrial/ventricular rates, their corresponding intervals, P/R waves amplitudes, and AV interval.

Statistical Results

The PACE 203 allows for statistical recording and analysis of pacer activity, to aid in determining the patient’s dependency on pacing.

Indications for Use

The PACE 203 temporary cardiac pacemaker is designed to be used with cardiac pacing lead systems for temporary atrial or ventricular or A-V sequential pacing. The PACE 203 has applications where such pacing modes are indicated for therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic purposes:

  • Sick Sinus Syndrome
  • Bradycardia with congestive heart failure
  • Complete heart block
  • Acute myocardial infarction complicated by heart block
  • Sinus bradycardia
  • Cardiac arrest with ventricular asystole
  • Atrial and/or ventricular ectopic arrhythmia
  • Postoperatively after cardiac surgery
  • Temporary application during implantation or exchange of permanent pacemaker.
  • Supra-ventricular tachycardia (atrial overdrive stimulation)
