Pace Medical (US) has received FDA approval for its Model 4570 dual-chamber temporary cardiac pacemaker. The device can be used in post-operative open-heart surgery patients of any age, as it is "the only device of its kind in the world that has the ability to sense and pace at high rates in the DDD mode", claims the company. This makes it particularly suitable for use in infants and young children developing temporary heart block following open-heart surgery.
