Medtronic - 5388 Temporary Pacemaker
Manufactured by Medtronic

The Medtronic Model 5388 is a battery-powered, temporary, dual chamber pacemaker designed primarily for temporary antibradycardia pacing therapy.

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.

    Three-Dial Operation       
  1. Simply adjusting the top three dials provides effective pacing in most clinical situations.       
  2. Changing the pacing rate automatically adjusts other dual-chamber temporary pacing parameters.       
  3. More Therapy Options       
  4. Pediatric patients may need a pacing rate up to 200 ppm.       
  5. A patient's high stimulation threshold may require a ventricular output of 25 mA.       
  6. For managing atrial tachyarrhythmias, a rapid atrial pacing rate up to 800 ppm is possible.       
  7. Safe and Reliable            
  8. The patient cable system uses protected electrical connections to increase patient safety.       
  9. The Model 5388 incorporates the quality and durability you expect from Medtronic temporary pacemakers.
