Parad+TM is a dual-chamber discrimination algorithm which discriminates ventricular tachycardia from supraventricular tachycardia or sinus tachycardia.
It has been designed with the typical ECG characteristics of the different tachycardia rhythms.
By featuring AF DetectTM, Parad+TM is the only discriminator to include beat-to-beat R-R long cycle search to distinguish stable, rapidly conducted AF from VT.

Parad+TM discriminates ventricular tachycardia from supraventricular or sinus tachycardia based on the following criteria:
Parad+TM is the best-in-class arrhythmia discrimination algorithm with 99% specifity.1
The OPTION study demonstrated a low inappropriate shock rate at only 2.6% at one year with conventional settings*.2
VT zone [170-200] bpm, 12 cycles persistence
VF zone > 200 bpm, 6 cycles persistence
