Contemporary leadless pacemakers (PMs) only feature single-chamber ventricular pacing. However, the majority of patients require dual-chamber pacing or cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Several leadless PMs implanted in the same heart would make that possible if they were able to synchronize their activity in an efficient, safe, and reliable way. Thus, a dedicated ultra-low-power wireless communication method for PM synchronization is required.
