Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The effect of BMS-919373 on Atrial effective refractory period (AERP) in subjects with a dual chamber pacemaker [ Time Frame: At 0.5, 1, 2, and 4 hours following study drug administration ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The safety assessments will be based on Adverse event reports, vital sign measurements, Electrocardiogram (ECGs), physical examinations and clinical laboratory tests [ Time Frame: At 1, 2, and 4 hours following study drug administration ]
  2. Safety assessments based on Ventricular Effective Refractory Period (VERP) and change from baseline [ Time Frame: At 2 hour following study drug administration ]
  3. Safety assessments based on Atrioventricular interval (AVI) and change from baseline [ Time Frame: At 1, 2, and 4 hours following study drug administration ]
  4. Safety assessments based on Wenckebach cycle length (WCL) and change from baseline [ Time Frame: At 1, 2, and 4 hours following study drug administration ]
  5. Safety assessments based on Intra-atrial conduction time (IACT) and change from baseline [ Time Frame: At 1, 2, and 4 hours following study drug administration ]

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age 18 years to 85 years
  • Eligible patients will have a dual-chamber permanent pacemaker
  • Women who are not of childbearing potential

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with a history of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) that is either

    • (i) Permanent (i.e. patients are only in AF and never in sinus rhythm) or
    • (ii) Persistent (i.e. patients who's episodes of AF are longer than 7 days and require medical intervention, such as electrical or medical cardioversion, to return to sinus rhythm), are excluded
  • History of Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or stroke in the last 12 months
  • History of clinically significant ventricular arrhythmia (not including isolated monomorphic Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs)). Such arrhythmias are marked by loss of consciousness, emergent cardioversion or defibrillation or unstable vital signs requiring medical intervention
  • Complete heart block
  • Planned surgery, endovascular intervention or cardioversion within the study period
  • History of atrial fibrillation
