This pilot EEG mapping study was designed to explore thinking processes using complex mental imagery and thought processes. EEG was recorded with 19 electrodes (10/20 system against averaged ear lobe signals) while volunteers (n = 42) performed two separate tasks: visualization of an abstract concept and interpretation of a painting. Average spectral(More)
BACKGROUND The reentrant mechanism of postinfarct ventricular tachycardia (VT) has been documented by surgical mapping analysis, but little is known about postinfarct VT circuits and the characteristics of their related protected isthmus with the use of 3D catheter mapping systems. METHODS AND RESULTS A 3D electroanatomic mapping was performed in 21(More)
AIMS The ECOST trial examined prospectively the long-term safety and effectiveness of home monitoring (HM) of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD). METHODS AND RESULTS The trial's primary objective was to randomly compare the proportions of patients experiencing ≥ 1 major adverse event (MAE), including deaths from all causes, and cardiovascular,(More)
AIMS Automatic daily transmission of data from implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) enables the remote monitoring of device status and leads function. We report on a 2-year experience with remote monitoring in 40 recipients of high-voltage ICD leads, prone to fracture and under advisory since October 2007. METHODS AND RESULTS The ICDs were(More)
AIMS Insufficient data exists regarding predictors of electrical storms (ES) and clinical outcome in patients treated with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). The purpose of this study was to delineate a subgroup of patients likely to experience ES and to determine the impact of ES on mortality in ICD recipients. METHODS AND RESULTS Baseline(More)
– The future success of the mobile communications revolution strongly depends on increasing the data rate and quality of service (QoS) available to the mobile user. This will enable value added services, which are not possible with current state of the art mobile wireless radio systems. While an increase in data rate, and maybe to some extent also QoS,(More)
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) is a multiple access technique that is starting to be examined as an alternative to Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) for cellular mobile systems. Until recently, OFDMA had received little attention for multicellular applications and as a consequence of this, few results are available on the impact of(More)
