Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in hemodynamic state during all tachycardia [ Time Frame: <3 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary objective is to demonstrate for all tachycardia (supra-ventricular and ventricular tachycardia) a 90 % [two sided confidence interval of 75-100 %] agreement between the true hemodynamic state (stable or unstable) derived from arterial blood pressure measurement and the hemodynamic state determined by tissue perfusion


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in hemodynamic state during SVT [ Time Frame: <3 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The secondary objective is to demonstrate for supra-ventricular tachycardia a 90 % [two sided confidence interval of 75-100 %] agreement between the true hemodynamic state (stable or unstable) derived from arterial blood pressure measurement and the hemodynamic state determined by tissue perfusion.


Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: March 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: High rate atrial and vetricular stimulation
    The right atria and ventricle of the subject will be electrically stimulated at high rate mimicking tachycardia episodes using electrodes placed in the right atria and ventricle.
    Other Name: High rate pacing
    Procedure: Ventricular Tachycardia induction
    A programmed electrical stimulation protocol will be performed using an electrode placed in the right ventricle.
    Other Name: VT induction
Detailed Description:

This study is being conducted to evaluate the feasibility to detect hemodynamic changes induced by supra-ventricular or ventricular tachycardia (SVT or VT) using tissue perfusion. Patients with a standard indication for either an electrophysiological study or an implantable cardioverter defibrillators(ICD) implant can be included into this study. Tissue perfusion and arterial blood pressure will be monitored and recorded throughout the electrophysiological procedure or ICD implant testing.

The study will be conducted in two consecutive phases. After completion of study phase I the study phase II will commence. Study phase I will be an acute non-invasive study in patients with an indication for an electrophysiological study, in whom tissue perfusion will be measured non-invasively with an epi-cutaneous tissue perfusion sensor. Phase II will be an acute invasive study in patients with an indication for the implantation of an ICD, in whom the tissue perfusion sensor will be placed in the surgically prepared device pocket on the muscular pectoralis or between the muscular pectoralis major and muscular pectoralis minor.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
