Complexity Science Helps in Early-detection of Fibrillations and Tachyarrhythmia

The main goal of ONTONET-CRT™ is to reduce detection times as well as unnecessary ICD shocks. ONTONET-CRT™ adopts new model-free technology which does not rely on traditional math models. Instead of conventional analysis ONTONET-CRT™ processes the EGM and computes its complexity. Its sudden fluctuations generally anticipate events such as fibrillations or tachycardias.

ONTONET-CRT™ processing of EGM data indicates that fluctuations of complexity generally precede tachycardias or fibrillations. This means that it is possible to gain precious time in properly detecting and classifying the event and even preventing it altogether.

Analyses of EGMs shows that in over 80% of the cases ONTONET-CRT™ is able to anticipate commencement of tachycardias and fibrillations by a significant number of heart beats. This opens news avenues in terms of dealing with these events even before they commence.

Below is an example of how a sudden increase in complexity precedes a Ventricular Tachycardia.

Established originally in 2005 in the USA, Ontonix is a technology company headquartered in Como, Italy. The unusual technology and solutions developed by Ontonix focus on countering what most threatens safety, advanced products, critical infrastructures, or IT network security - the rapid growth of complexity. In 2007 the company received recognition by being selected as Gartner's Cool Vendor. What makes Ontonix different from all those companies and research centers who claim to manage complexity is that we have a complexity metric. This means that we MEASURE complexity. We detect anomalies in complex defense systems without using Machine Learning for one very good reason: our clients don’t have the luxury of multiple examples of failures necessary to teach software to recognize them. We identify anomalies without having seen them before. Sometimes, you must get it right the first and only time!
