The Medtronic Model 5388 is a battery-powered, temporary, dual chamber pacemaker designed primarily for temporary antibradycardia pacing therapy. The device provides eight selectable modes of pacing therapy: DDD, DVI, DDI, DOO, VOO, VVI, AOO, and AAI. High-rate, burst pacing therapy up to 800 ppm (pulses per minute), for atria1 tachyarrhythmias, is available in the asynchronous mode.
The device is typically connected to temporary transvenous, epicardial or myocardial pacing leads, in a bipolar configuration, using patient cables (Medtronic Models 5433A and 5433V) or surgical cables (Medtronic Model 5832 or 55832s).
The Medtronic Model 5388 temporary pacemaker is intended to be used in conjunction with a cardiac pacing lead system for temporary single or dual chamber pacing in a clinical environment. The Model 5388 can be used where short-term demand (synchronous) or asynchronous pacing is indicated for therapeutic, prophylactic or diagnostic purposes.
