Understanding Physiological Pacing / Conduction System Pacing
Physiological Pacing, also known as Conduction System Pacing, is a breakthrough approach in treating patients afflicted with complete heart block. This innovative method significantly mitigates the risk of pacing-induced cardiomyopathy and heart failure by employing a more natural mode of stimulating heartbeats, thus maintaining the equilibrium in cardiac function.
It works by engaging with the heart's inherent conduction system, thereby preventing the ventricular dyssynchrony and cardiac dysfunction commonly seen with traditional pacing methods.
The latest advancement in this field is the HIS Bundle Pacing and Left Bundle Branch Pacing, a state-of-the-art alternative to Right Ventricular (RV) Pacing. With this novel technique, we can leverage the heart's normal electrical conduction system to deliver a pacing solution that reduces the risk of cardiac function deterioration. This unique approach exemplifies a physiological way of pacing the heart, giving patients a safer, more effective treatment option.

Physiological Pacing - Your Queries Answered
While traditional pacemakers restore normal heart rhythms for millions globally, the prevalent technique involving the ventricular lead placement in the lower Right Ventricle carries its own challenges. This approach can elevate the risk of complications such as atrial fibrillation and heart failure and potentially increase mortality rates.
Conduction System Pacing (CSP), while advantageous, does pose certain challenges. The technique's overall complexity requires additional training for cardiac physiologists, and the wider catheter lab team, not only during the implant procedure but also for follow-up and device programming. Additionally, current devices lack CSP-specific algorithms and auto-adjustments, as seen in conventional pacing.
