    Comparison of Physiologic Response with Rate Adaptive Pacing Driven by Minute Ventilation and Accelerometer [LCID Study Number: 2014-005] The purpose of this study is to determine which pacemaker response sensor is best (motion driven or breathing driven). The study is also investigating whether optimizing the sensor based on the individual patient will give better results in terms of increasing the patient's exercise capacity. Patients with or planning to receive a Boston Scientific pacemaker may be eligible to participate. Principal Investigator(s):

    The Leadless II Study: A Safety and Effectiveness Trial for a Leadless Pacemaker System [LCID Study Number: 2014-013] The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a leadless pacemaker system in treating patients with slow heart rate or irregular heartbeats. The leadless pacemaker is implanted through a vein in the leg into the heart and is intended to help reduce certain complications associated with traditional pacemakers because it does not require a pocket under the collar bone and it does not have lead wires. This pacemaker is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and hence is considered investigational. Principal Investigator(s):
    Bruce G. Hook, MD
