Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The objective is to demonstrate that agreement correlation is superior to 67% [ Time Frame: 13 months ]

Enrollment: 388
Study Start Date: September 2009
Study Completion Date: September 2011
Primary Completion Date: September 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: ICD
    Paradym CRT model 8750 - Paradym DR model 8550 - Paradym VR model 8250
Detailed Description:
The study will particularly focus on a new sensor-based diagnostic feature, called PhD-Clinical Status (PhD). A dedicated PhD screen shows the trends of patients' ventilation levels at rest (MVR) and under effort (MVE), and the corresponding level of activity, day-by-day, over a period of 6 months.

  4. Signed and dated informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Any contraindication for ICD therapy
  2. Abdominal implantation site
  3. Acute myocarditis
  4. Unstable coronary symptoms (unstable angina or myocardial infarction) within the last month
  5. Planned heart transplant
  6. Mechanical tricuspid valve
  7. Unable to perform the 6 minute Walking Test at time of enrollment
  8. Already included in another clinical study
  9. Life expectancy less than 13 months
  10. Inability to understand the purpose of the study or refusal to cooperate
  11. Inability or refusal to provide informed consent
