In brief: CRT

Also known as cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker, this device has 2 or 3 leads positioned to make the left ventricle contract at the same time - or in synchrony - as the right ventricle so that the heart beats in a more balanced way.

In brief: BiV pacing

A biventricular pacemaker is designed to keep the two heart ventricles in synchrony.
Some CHF patients benefit significantly from having this type of pacing. It uses multiple leads including one in or on both left and right ventricles and the device to synchronize activity.
