Protecta XT ICD

Protecta XT-ICD

The Protecta™ family of devices are the first ever implantable defibrillators designed with SmartShock™ technology to recognise life-threatening arrhythmias from non-life threatening episodes, and deliver a therapeutic shock only when a dangerous heartbeat is putting life at stake. This allows patients peace of mind because their heart condition is in control and will be treated with the necessary shocks only when appropriate

Key features

SmartShock technology

The SmartShock™ Technology includes six Medtronic-exclusive features designed to recognise life-threatening vs non-life threatening heart arrhythmias and noise in order to deliver therapeutic shocks only in response to life-threatening conditions.

PainFREE™ Therapy

PainFREE Therapy delivers painless electrical pacing pulses called Antitachycardia Pacing (ATP), which may eliminate the need for a shock.

Conexus™ Wireless Telemetry and the Medtronic Carelink network
