Abstract

See full text

A method and system for ascertaining the condition of the heart's conduction system in a patient treated for congestive heart failure with pacing therapy. In accordance with the invention, changes in ventricular activation patterns are monitored over time in order to detect changes in the heart's conduction system that may occur due to physiological regeneration of conduction pathways. The activation patterns are reflected by electrogram signals detected from different ventricular locations. By measuring the difference in conduction times of an excitation impulse traveling from the AV node to the different ventricular locations, a parameter representative of the heart's conduction system is obtained that may be used to adjust the pacing therapy in accordance therewith.
