The North American Society for Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE) and the British Pacing and Electrophysiology Group (BPEG) have specified generic codes for use on pacemakers.
Number of positions in code: 5
dual (atrium and ventricle)
single (atrium or ventricle)
response to sensing
dual (triggered and inhibited)
programmability rate modulation
dual (pacing and shock)
• The S code for positions I and II are for manufacturer's designation only.
• Positions I, II and III are used for antibradyarrhythmia function.
