Technology Overview

Enhanced Detection and Treatment

Experience increased detection capabilities in traditionally challenging arrhythmias with Abbott’s new discriminator, VF Therapy Assurance.


Decrease time to treatment for arrhythmias in patients likely to be hemodynamically unstable


>800 patients annually with challenging arrhythmias could have their lives saved because of VF Therapy Assurance1

Safer Management of Care

Manage high DFTs with the industry’s most flexible option, DeFT Response™ technology. The programming options are designed to optimize rescue therapy to meet each patient’s unique physiology and changing needs.


Customized matching of shock waveform to patients’ cellular response time to lower DFTs

100% success in preserving a 10J safety margin with DeFT Response technology vs. 83% achievement of 10J safety margin in fixed-tilt group of patients with competitive devices2

Reduced Inappropriate Therapy

ShockGuard™ technology with DecisionTx™ programming is designed to reduce inappropriate therapy and minimize the need for programming adjustments at implant.

98.4% of patients did not receive inappropriate shocks at 1 year (CI: 97.2 -99.2, p<0.0001)3
