• TAP Technology (Transesophageal Atrial Pacing)

    "Real Control, Real Fast . . . Just Dial It In".

    CardioCommand takes advantage of the anatomical proximity between the esophagus and left atrium for minimally invasive pacing and monitoring of the heart. Our transesophageal systems are safe, easy-to-use and provide unique options for management of cardiac disease:

    Transesophageal Atrial Pacing

    • Non-exercise cardiac stress testing in less time and with less risk of dysrhythmia as compared to dobutamine.

    • Radionuclide or echocardiography exams that would be difficult with conventional exercise testing.

    • Differential diagnosis of complex arrhythmias with amplified P-wave of the esophageal ECG.

    • Anti-tachycardia ("overdrive") pacing for cardioversion of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) or atrial flutter.

    • Induction of SVT or flutter to evaluate atrial vulnerability or efficacy of anti-arrhythmia therapies (drugs, ablation).

    • Temporary atrial pacing for patients with bradycardia, hypotension or sick sinus syndrome (SSS).

    • Esophageal electrophysiology and temporary atrial pacing in infants and children with a 5 French catheter (TAPCATH).
