BACKGROUND Interruption of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) impairs the perfusion of the fibrillating heart, worsening the chance for successful defibrillation. Therefore ECG-analysis during ongoing chest compression could provide a considerable progress in comparison with standard analysis techniques working only during "hands-off" intervals. METHODS(More)
GOAL Rotary blood pumps (RBPs) typically support the left ventricle by pumping blood from the ventricle to the aorta, partially bypassing the aortic valve (AV). Monitoring the AV opening during RBP support would provide important information about cardiac-pump interaction. However, currently this information is not continuously available. In this study, an(More)
