The AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System

AtaCor

AN INSIDE JOB

THAT’S OUTSIDE THE HEART.

red line

First of its kind, the innovative AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System is advancing the standard of cardiac pacing. It is the only implantable temporary pacing system designed to leave the heart and vascular system completely untouched—for prompt pacing support without the discomfort, risk, and limitations of traditional methods.

PACE IT ABOVE THE HEART.

Place it above the heart

The custom StealthTrac Lead connects to any commercially-available external pacemaker.

Extravascular Safety

Using a proprietary parasternal approach, the AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System advances a custom pacing lead into the extracardiac tissue between the ribs and pericardium.

By harnessing the human anatomy, the AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System is engineered to provide reliable pacing support while eliminating the risks and complexity of transvenous pacing.

Reduced risk of vessel puncture
Reduced risk of lead displacement
Reduced risk of perforation and tamponade
Reduced risk of systemic infection

TEMPORARY PACING BEYOND THE

CATH LAB–AND BEYOND EXPECTATIONS.

red line

Rapid imaging-free delivery
Imaging-free delivery is designed to get the heart up to speed without slowing you down. With the AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System, lead delivery will no longer rely on fluoroscopic guidance or cath lab availability, reducing time-to-therapy and enabling you to provide hassle-free pacing protection at the speed of life.

Timely Protection

TIMELY PROTECTION

WITHOUT THE DISCOMFORT.

red line

Unlike traditional pacing methods, the AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System is designed to rapidly and reliably restore cardiac rhythm with patient comfort in mind, eliminating patient discomfort from jugular or femoral vein access for transvenous pacing and enabling emergent pacing without stimulating skeletal muscle.
Reduced Patient Discomfort

Reduced Bedrest

EXTRAVASCULAR ACCESS FOR

REDUCED BEDREST RESTRICTIONS.

red line

Reduced bedrest restrictions

In addition to streamlining delivery of temporary pacing, the AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System’s extravascular implantation is designed to remove bedrest restrictions, speeding patient recovery and shortening hospital length-of-stay:

  • Supports safe post-procedure patient ambulation
  • Enables patient transfer to non-ICU bed for extended evaluation
  • Reduces need for ICU observation and related nursing resources, decreasing cost-of-care

SIMPLIFYING PATIENT MANAGEMENT

DURING AND AFTER TAVR

red line

TAVR procedures are on the rise—and expected to increase as the population ages and procedure indications expand to younger and healthier patients.1 The AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System is designed to support stable extravascular and extracardiac pacing during valve deployment and postoperative evaluation for conduction disturbances, for streamlined TAVR patient management and recovery:

  • Enables preoperative lead insertion which may shorten overall procedure length
  • Connects to commercially-available external temporary pacemakers
  • Eliminates transvenous pacing leads
  • Reduces vascular access management and complications
  • Enables safe post-procedure patient ambulation
  • Eliminates bedrest restrictions, reducing ICU and related nursing costs
Simplifying Patient Maagement

SIMPLIFYING PATIENT MANAGEMENT

AFTER MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION

red line

Conduction abnormalities, whether transitory or persistent, develop in approximately 90% of patients who experience a myocardial infarction.2 The AtaCor EV Temporary Pacing System is designed to support stable pacing of new-onset arrhythmias to help guide treatment decisions and optimize patient care:

  • Enables evaluation of conduction disturbances to determine the need for permanent pacing
  • Enables safe post-procedure patient ambulation
  • Eliminates bedrest restrictions, reducing ICU and related nursing costs
