What is MVP?

Managed ventricular pacing (MVP) is a new feature first introduced by Medtronic. In this mode, a heart device allows the heart to beat naturally on its own more of the time. To do this, it allows more time between heartbeats before it delivers a pacing impulse to the heart. This reduces unnecessary right ventricular pacing, which is good because that can increase the risk of heart failure or atrial fibrillation.
