Tallinn University of Technology

Mart Min is a full professor and leading scientist at the Thomas Johann Seebeck Department of Electronics, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. He received a Diploma Engineer’s qualification in Electronics from the same university in 1969, and a Ph.D. in Measurement Science from Kyiv Polytechnic, Ukraine in 1984. From 1992 to 1993 he was a guest scientist and professor at the Technical University of Munich and Bundeswehr University, Germany. From 2007 to 2010 he was a leading scientist at the international research group of the Institute of Bioprocessing and Analytical Measurement Technique, Germany. Dr. Min is interested in electronic measurements and signal processing methods with implementations in medicine, including the development of rate-responsive cardiac pacemakers for US companies. He is an author and co-author of more than 250 papers and 40 patents as well as an editor of several scientific books in biomedical engineering. He is a senior life member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Instrumentation and Measurement Society and Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. He is a member of the International Committee for Promotion of Research in Bio-Impedance (ICPRBI). Professor Emeritus since 2017, Dr. Min continues activities as a research scientist in biomedical electronics.

Different artificial tools, such as heart-pacing devices, wearable and implantable monitors, engineered heart valves and stents, and many other cardiac devices, are in use in medical practice. Recent developments in the methods of cardiac pacing along with appropriate selection of equipment are the purpose of this book. Implantable heart rate management devices and wearable cardiac monitors are discussed. Indications for using specific types of cardiac pacemakers, cardiac resynchronization therapy devices, and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are of interest and their contraindications are considered. Special attention is paid to using leadless devices. The subcutaneous ICD obviates the need for transvenous leads and leadless pacemakers are entirely implantable into the right ventricle. Finally, applications of user-friendly wearable devices for the detection of atrial arrhythmia are debated.
