The BIP-01-IMZ & BIP-02-IMZ Endocardial Bipolar Electrodes along with Implantable Electric Pacemakers
equipped with IS-1 type (ISO 5841-3) connectors are intended for continuous stimulation of cardiac activity.
The BIP-01-IMZ electrode (straight shape) is intended for stimulation of ventricles, while the BIP-02-IMZ
electrode (J-shape) is applied for stimulation of atriums. Length of electrodes – 600 mm. The electrodes are supplied in fully
An electrode looks like a piece of wire connected from one end with contact electrodes (anode, cathode) and
from another - by connector - with cardiac pacemaker.
Structurally an electrode represents a wire consisting of two coaxial spiral conductors, isolated with silicone
rubber. Material of wire - CoCrNi. One of conductors is attached to cathode and connector, while the second one - to anode
and anodic contact of the same connector.
Contact electrodes (cathode, anode) serve for direct transfer of electric pulses to a stimulated heart zone.
The cathodic electrode is crafted of titanium with iridium-oxide coating. The surface structure is of fractal
nature; surface area equals to 6 mm2.
The anodic electrode is also made of titanium with iridium-oxide coating and surface area of 56 mm2.
В Delivery set of BIP-01-IMZ (BIP-02-IMZ) electrode includes:
Guides 1 and 2 (different rigidity) are employed for giving rigidity to an electrode at implantation.
Catcher is used for introducing a guide in electrode.
Dilator serves for introducing an electrode in a vein at a surgical method of electrode introduction.
Retainer helps to fasten an electrode on a vein.
