The third method is the iterative method where the operator starts with an AV delay programming that causes ventricular pre-excitation.
The AV delay programming starts at a lower value and then delay is increased progressively to get an optimal value that provides maximal difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressures.
Quick determination of the optimal AV delay at rest in patient paced in DOD mode for complete AV block (abstract).
This is determined by the native AV conduction time and the sensed AV delay. Shorter delays allow for more complete apical preexcitation, by not allowing activation through the His-Purkinje system.
A pacemaker that will dynamically shorten its AV delay as heart rate increases is useful.
For example, the site of right atrial (RA) and RV pacing, optimal AV delay and means by which to obtain it, minimizing side effects of pacing in patients with HCM, and effect of long term pacing.
