For optimal support along the CRT healthcare journey, the Evity 8 CRT-P series offers LV VectorOpt, BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring®, MRI AutoDetect and CLS. Empowering CRT – Unique Patient Care Opportunities Beyond Implantation and Therapy.
- Quadripolar LV pacing – Enables multiple left-ventricular pacing and sensing configurations for CRT management.
- LV VectorOpt including RV-LV conduction time measurement – Simplifies the process to select the right pacing vector.
- BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® – Effective remote monitoring of heart failure and system integrity based on automatic and wireless daily transmissions - enables earlier intervention and Home Monitoring-supported follow-ups that are approved by the U.S. FDA and CE notified body.
- Event-triggered IEGM transmissions within 24h– Enable prompt evaluations for fast and better-informed therapy decisions.
- ProMRI® – allows patients to undergo MRI scanning under specific conditions.
- MRI AutoDetect – Simplifies MRI access by automatically detecting an MR environment and switching the system to safe MRI mode, programmable for up to 14 days .
- Closed Loop Stimulation (CLS) – Is a unique physiological rate response modulation that is able to adapt the heart rate in response to both physical and emotional stress.
- Heart Failure Monitor – Enables early detection of changes in patients’ heart failure conditions with the continuous monitoring of clinical parameters.
- Capture Control (RA, RV & LV) – Improves patient safety and extends device longevity by automatically adjusting pacing amplitudes for effective CRT therapy.
- AV Opt – In-office follow-up test for improved hemodynamics, suggesting a patient-individual AV delay and sense compensation by automatically measuring p-wave lengths.
- Vp Suppression – Follows a natural rhythm and promotes the underlying intrinsic rhythm with on-demand ventricular pacing.
- EasyAV – Facilitates the programming of optimal AV timing.
- SafeSync RF telemetry – Is wandless and saves time when transmitting data reliably at implantation and follow-up.
- TrendView – Displays channels' electrical trends over the last 240 days, allowing the user to check the system's stability over time.
- Auto-initialization activates essential pacemaker functions and follow-up data within 10 minutes.

BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring
BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring is a remote monitoring service available with cardiac monitors, pacemakers, implantable defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) systems. Home Monitoring allows physicians to continuously and reliably survey patients’ device and physiological condition, and alerts responsible healthcare staff of acute health changes within 24 hours.

MRI AutoDetect minimizes the time in MRI mode to the duration of the scan itself, ensuring optimal pacing directly before and after MRI scan. Detection of the MR environment and automatic activation of the MRI mode eliminate additional programming, save time and increase efficiency.

BIOTRONIK ProMRI technology enables patients with a pacemaker, implantable defibrillator, cardiac monitor, or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) or pacemaker (CRT-P) to undergo an MRI scan. BIOTRONIK IPGs, ICDs and CRT devices with MRI AutoDetect have the additional capability of automatically recognizing an MR environment within a programmable time window, switching on the device’s MRI mode for only as long as is required to complete the scan, about 30 minutes. This keeps patients safer by reducing the amount of time their device is in MRI mode with limited device therapy.
