Boston Scientific Field Safety Notice for Minute Volume (MV) Over-Sensing
The MV sensor in Boston Scientific pacemakers is used for RightRate™ (rate adaptive pacing), Respiratory Rate Trend, or AP Scan™. In late-2015 Boston Scientific was made aware of cases of apparent MV over-sensing. In mid-2017 it was identified that intermittent impedance change was a significant contributor to the root cause of this phenomenon with a few larger implanting centres reporting a number of cases of MV over-sensing compared to the general experience.
