Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: general description
Description
The Q-TECH Programmer (the “programmer”), Model 3200, is a component of the Cameron Health/
Boston Scientific S-ICD System, which is prescribed for patients when cardiac arrhythmia management
is warranted. The other components of the S-ICD System include the SQ-RX Pulse Generator (the “SQRX device”), Q-TRAK Subcutaneous Electrode (“electrode”) and the Q-GUIDE Subcutaneous Electrode
Insertion Tool (“EIT”). The programmer communicates wirelessly with the SQ-RX device to enable
adjustment of programmable settings and data collection. The S-ICD System is designed for ease of use
and simplicity of patient management. The S-ICD System has a number of automatic functions designed
to reduce the amount of time required for implantation, initial programming and patient follow-up.
Indications for Use
The S-ICD System is intended to provide defibrillation therapy for the treatment of life-threatening
ventricular tachyarrhythmias in patients who do not have symptomatic bradycardia, incessant
ventricular tachycardia, or spontaneous, frequently recurring ventricular tachycardia that is reliably
terminated with anti-tachycardia pacing.
Contraindications
Unipolar pacemakers are contraindicated for use with the S-ICD System.
Programmer Warnings and Cautions
General
•
External defibrillation equipment should be available for immediate use during the
implantation procedure and follow-up.
•
Use the programmer only with the external power supply packaged with the programmer.
Using other accessories may cause damage to the programmer.
•
The US power cord is for connection to 110 VAC supply mains. All other power cords are for
connection to 230 VAC supply mains. Outside North America, use the supplied power cord that
exactly matches your AC electrical outlet.
•
To avoid risk of electric shock, the programmer must only be connected to a supply mains with
protective earth.
•
Mains isolation is achieved by disconnecting the AC power cord. Do not position the programmer
or the external power supply in a manner that would make it difficult to disconnect that cord.
•
Never use a damaged external power supply or a damaged programmer.

Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: general description
2
•
The programmer is not waterproof or explosion-proof and it cannot be sterilized. Do not use
it in the presence of flammable gas mixtures, including anesthetic mixtures containing air,
oxygen, or nitrous oxide.
•
Confirm that the programmer is in communication with the intended implanted SQ-RX Pulse
Generator.
•
The programmer is intended for use by healthcare professionals only. The programmer
may cause radio interference or may disrupt the operation of nearby equipment. It may be
necessary to take mitigation measures, such as reorienting or relocating the programmer or
shielding the location.
•
By design, the programmer emits radio frequencies (403.5 MHz and 2.5 GHz). This may interfere
with nearby equipment. Closely monitor medical electrical equipment in the vicinity when
using the programmer.
•
The presence of other equipment in the same frequency band (403.5 MHz for the SQ-RX Pulse
Generator and 2.5 GHz for the printer) may interfere with communication. If communication
problems occur, refer to the Troubleshooting section of this manual.
•
If the programmer is used near other medical or office equipment, all equipment should be
observed to verify normal operation. Other equipment may interfere with the programmer,
even if that other equipment complies with the International Special Committee on Radio
Interference (CISPR) emission requirements.
•
Use of non-Cameron Health/Boston Scientific-approved accessories may result in increased
emissions or decreased functionality of the programmer and may cause unintended
operational behavior of the programmer.
•
No modification of the programmer is allowed.
•
Use only the Cameron Health/Boston Scientific S-ICD programmer and appropriate software to
communicate with and program the SQ-RX Pulse Generator.
•
Do not discard the programmer in a fire, incinerate, or subject it to temperatures that exceed
100° C (212° F). This could cause the programmer to explode.
•
Do not disassemble or alter any parts of the programmer.
•
Do not immerse the programmer in liquid of any kind. If the programmer does get wet, contact
customer service for information about returning the programmer to Cameron Health/Boston
Scientific. Do not attempt to dry the programmer in an oven, microwave, or dryer because this
poses a risk of overheating or explosion.
Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: general description
•
Do not subject the programmer to temperatures outside of the -10° C to 55° C (14° F to 131° F)
storage range. Exposure to high temperatures may cause the programmer to overheat or ignite,
and may possibly reduce its performance and service life.
•
Mishandling (such as dropping or crushing) could damage the programmer. If you suspect
damage to the programmer, contact your Cameron Health/Boston Scientific representative or the
customer service department for instructions and return packaging.
•
The display on the programmer is made of glass or acrylic and could break if the programmer is
dropped or if it receives significant impact. Do not use if screen is broken or cracked as this could
cause injury .
•
Contact your Cameron Health/Boston Scientific representative or the customer service
department for assistance or a replacement part.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
The programmer may be affected by ESD. If ESD occurs and the programmer’s functionality is
affected, attempt to reset the programmer or contact your Cameron Health/Boston Scientific
representative or the customer service department for instructions.
•
Do not touch or connect the telemetry wand to the programmer unless ESD precautionary
procedures are used.
S-ICD System Warnings and Cautions
Before using the S-ICD System, read and follow all warnings and cautions provided in this manual. Refer
to the SQ-RX Pulse Generator, Q-TRAK Electrode or Q-GUIDE Electrode Insertion Tool User’s Manuals for
information on implanting and explanting the S-ICD System.
The S-ICD System contains sterile products for single use only. Do not resterilize. Handle the
components of the S-ICD System with care at all times and maintain proper sterile technique.
General
•
External defibrillation equipment should be available for immediate use during the
implantation procedure and follow-up.
•
Placing a magnet over the SQ-RX Pulse Generator suspends arrhythmia detection and therapy
response. Removing the magnet resumes arrhythmia detection and therapy response.
•
Battery depletion will eventually cause the SQ-RX Pulse Generator to stop functioning.
Defibrillation and excessive numbers of charging cycles shorten the SQ-RX Pulse Generator’s
battery longevity.

Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: general description
•
The S-ICD System has not been evaluated for pediatric use.
•
The S-ICD System does not provide long-term bradycardia pacing, Cardiac Resynchronization
Therapy (CRT) or Anti-Tachycardia Pacing (ATP).
Use of Other Medical Therapies/Diagnostic Procedures
4
•
External defibrillation or cardioversion may damage the S-ICD System. Avoid placing the
defibrillation paddles directly over the SQ-RX device or electrode.
•
Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) may temporarily interfere with sensing and may cause
delay of therapy.
•
Do not expose a patient with an implanted S-ICD System to diathermy. The interaction of
diathermy therapy with an implanted SQ-RX Pulse Generator can damage the SQ-RX Pulse
Generator and cause patient injury.
•
Do not expose the patient to MRI scanning. MRI scanning can damage the SQ-RX Pulse
Generator and cause patient injury.
•
Electrical interference or “noise” from sources such as electrosurgical and monitoring
equipment can interfere with the communication between the programmer and SQ-RX Pulse
Generator or cause inappropriate therapy. If interference occurs, move and reposition the
programmer or wand away from the source of the interference.
•
Ionizing radiation therapy, such as radioactive cobalt, linear accelerators, and betatrons
may adversely affect the S-ICD System operation. Therapeutic ionizing radiation cannot be
immediately detected; however, it can damage the electronic components of the SQ-RX Pulse
Generator. To minimize the risks of ionizing radiation:
»»
Shield the SQ-RX Pulse Generator with a radiation-resistant material, regardless of the
distance between the SQ-RX Pulse Generator and the radiation beam.
»»
Do not project the radiation port directly at the SQ-RX Pulse Generator.
»»
Evaluate the S-ICD System operation after each radiation treatment.
•
Lithotripsy and other therapeutic forms of ultrasound can damage the SQ-RX Pulse Generator.
If required, avoid direct flow of the pulse waves near the site of the implanted SQ-RX Pulse
Generator.
•
Use caution during ablation procedures. Program the S-ICD System to Therapy Off. Keep the
current path (electrode tip to ground) as far away as possible from the implanted SQ-RX Pulse
Generator and electrode.
•
The programmer is not suitable for use in the presence of a flammable anesthetic mixture with
air or with oxygen or nitrous oxide.
Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: general description
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Outside the Hospital Environment
Exposure to EMI or static magnetic fields may suspend tachycardia detection and possibly cause
temporary inhibition of therapy delivery. EMI may also trigger delivery of a shock in the absence
of a tachycardia. Automatic sensing and detection of tachycardias will resume when the patient
moves away from the EMI or static magnetic field source.
To minimize the risk, advise patients to avoid sources of EMI or static magnetic fields having
strengths of >10 gauss or 1 mTesla.
•
•
Sources of EMI include, but are not limited to:
»»
High-voltage power lines
»»
Arc welding equipment
»»
Electrical smelting furnaces
»»
Large radio-frequency transmitters (such as radar)
»»

Modes of Operation for the Q-TECH Programmer
Online Behavior
The programmer’s interface varies according to whether the programmer is Online (actively
communicating) or Offline (not communicating) with a selected SQ-RX device.
An Online session begins when the programmer establishes a telemetry link with a specific SQ-RX
device. A yellow alert screen is displayed if the telemetry signal is lost between the programmer and
the SQ-RX device for more than five seconds during active communication. This may occur if the
21
Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: Operation
wand is moved out of the telemetry communications range or if noise or interfering objects inhibit
communication. Programming commands, including Rescue Shocks, will not be available until
telemetry is reestablished.
Telemetry reconnection may occur automatically within one minute when the SQ-RX device and
wand are within telemetry range.
Note: Whenever the programmer is in active communication with an SQ-RX
device, charging of the pulse generator in preparation for delivering a shock
(whether commanded or in response to a detected arrhythmia) is indicated
by an audible notification. The notification continues until the shock is
delivered or aborted.
Offline Behavior
When the programmer is not actively communicating with an SQ-RX device it is Offline. During
Offline sessions, programmer settings can be accessed, and stored patient sessions can be viewed
and/or printed.
Stored Patient Sessions
During a patient follow-up visit, the programmer will retrieve data from the SQ-RX device’s
memory. The programmer can store up to 15 patient sessions. When the 16th session occurs,
the programmer will automatically replace the oldest stored session with the new data. A stored
session includes the following information:
•
Captured S-ECG Reports
•
Episode History (including any downloaded episodes)
•
Patient Data
•
Programmed Device Settings
To view stored patient sessions:

Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: Operation
Modes of Operation for the SQ-RX Device
The SQ-RX device has three modes of operation:
•
Shelf
•
Therapy On
•
Therapy Off
Shelf Mode
The Shelf mode is a low power consumption state intended for storage only. When communication
is initiated between the SQ-RX device and the programmer, a full-energy capacitor reformation is
automatically performed and the SQ-RX device is prepared for set-up. Once the SQ-RX device is
taken out of Shelf mode, it cannot be reprogrammed back into Shelf mode.
Therapy On Mode
The Therapy On mode is the primary operating mode of the SQ-RX device, allowing automatic
detection of, and response to, ventricular tachyarrhythmias.
Note: The SQ-RX device must be programmed out of Shelf mode before being
programmed to Therapy On.
Therapy Off Mode
The Therapy Off mode disables automatic therapy delivery and enables manual control of shock
delivery. Programmable parameters may be viewed and adjusted via the programmer. Also, the
subcutaneous electrogram (S-ECG) may be displayed or printed.
The SQ-RX device automatically defaults to Therapy Off mode when the SQ-RX device is taken out
of Shelf mode.
Note: Manual and rescue shock therapy are available once the initial Setup process
is complete.

Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: Operation
6.
Select and hold the Hold To Induce button for the desired duration (Figure 33).
Figure 33: Induction Test screen
The following functions occur during the test:
•
The S-ICD System induces ventricular fibrillation using 200 mA alternating current
(AC) at 50 Hz. Induction continues until the Hold To Induce button is released (up to
a maximum of 10 seconds per attempt).
•
Arrhythmia detection and the Live S-ECG are suspended during AC induction. Once
the Induction button is released, the programmer displays the patient’s rhythm.
•
Upon detection and confirmation of an induced arrhythmia, the S-ICD System
automatically delivers a shock at the programmed energy output and polarity.
•
If the shock fails to convert the arrhythmia, re-detection occurs and subsequent
shocks are delivered at the SQ-RX device’s maximum energy output (80 J).
Note: Following the release of the Hold To Induce button, evaluate the sensing
markers during the induced rhythm. The S-ICD System uses a lengthened
rhythm detection period. Consistent tachy “T” markers indicate that
tachyarrhythmia detection is occurring, and that capacitor charging is
imminent. If a high degree of amplitude variation is noted during the
arrhythmia, a slight delay may be expected prior to capacitor charging or
shock delivery.
41
Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: Operation
Note: The SQ-RX device can deliver a maximum of five shocks per episode. At any
time, an 80 J rescue shock can be delivered by pressing the Rescue Shock

Performing an SQ-RX Follow-up
Sensing Configuration and Automatic Setup
It is not necessary to perform Automatic Setup at each follow-up. If Automatic Setup is performed,
resulting in a vector change, sensing should be reevaluated. After the setup process is complete,
evaluate the streaming S-ECG during a pectoral exercise. Sensing performance during high rate
exercises can also be performed. Acceptable sensing will yield “S” markers synchronous to all QRS
complexes. If other markers are noted, use the Manual Setup process to evaluate other sensing
configurations.
Note: If Manual Setup was previously used to override a sensing configuration,
careful consideration should be taken when selecting Automatic Setup.
If an update to the reference S-ECG is desired due to a change in the patient’s resting ECG, follow
the Acquire Reference S-ECG instructions.

Manual shock
Manual Shock allows the user to deliver a synchronized shock during a sinus rhythm, an atrial
rhythm or a ventricular rhythm. The shock energy level is user-configured in the 10 to 80 joule range
(Figure 52). Manual shock may also be utilized at a low energy to assess system impedance/integrity
either at implant or as warranted by patient condition. A manual shock may be administered with
the S-ICD detection zone(s) either ON or OFF.
Figure 52: Manual shock
S-ICD System Magnet Model 4520
Model 4520 Magnet (the “magnet”) is a nonsterile accessory used to inhibit the delivery of therapy
from the SQ-RX device. Apply the magnet flat against the skin directly over the implanted SQ-RX
device for a minimum of one (1) second to suspend arrhythmia detection. Removal of the magnet
will return the SQ-RX device to normal operation. If the magnet is applied during an episode, the
episode will not be stored in the SQ-RX device memory.
61
Q-TECH™ PROGRAMMER: maintenance
Other behaviors of magnet application:
•
Inhibit shock therapy delivery
•
Terminate post-shock pacing therapy
•
Prohibit arrhythmia induction testing
•
Activate the SQ-RX device’s beeper with each detected QRS complex for 60 seconds
Note: A programmer commanded Rescue Shock can override the use of the magnet
as long as the magnet was in place prior to the initiation of the programming
command. If the magnet is applied after the initial command, the Rescue
Shock will be terminated.
Note: Magnet application does not affect wireless communication between the SQRX device and the programmer.
