A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11865353B2) discloses an active implantable medical device designed to quantify fusion rates in cardiac cycles. The device includes memory with instructions for capturing endocardial electrogram signals, deriving temporal components, generating parametric curves, and comparing them with reference curves to calculate descriptive parameters. In the event of a fusion situation, a metric is generated to quantify the fusion rate based on the calculated values. The device also involves applying stimulation with specific atrioventricular delays and pacing rates to obtain reference curves for complete capture and ventricular spontaneous rhythm situations.

Furthermore, the patent includes a method for quantifying fusion rates using similar processes as the device, along with a non-transitory computer-readable medium with instructions for executing the fusion rate quantification process. The method involves capturing EGM signals, deriving temporal components, generating parametric curves, comparing them with reference curves, and calculating descriptive parameters to quantify fusion rates. Additionally, the method includes applying specific stimulations to obtain reference curves for different cardiac cycle situations. Overall, the patent aims to provide a comprehensive system for accurately quantifying fusion rates in cardiac cycles using advanced technological processes and algorithms.
