An analog mapping system using a true bipolar left ventricular balloon electrode array is described, which enables simultaneous unipolar and bipolar recordings. It is an adaptation of a previous clinical analog mapping system used in the investigation of ventricular arrhythmias. The bipolar balloon array consists of 112 electrode pairs, each having a 2-mm separation. The signals from the electrodes are sensed in parallel by separate unipolar and bipolar amplifier units, which then drive a common multiplexer bus. The bipolar recording unit consists of high quality instrumentation amplifiers with adjustable gain and exhibits a full bandwidth minimum common mode rejection of 78 dB. Using this combination, it is possible to record local cardiac micropotentials while still retaining the advantages of unipolar electrograms to track overall cardiac activation.
