Arrhythmia discrimination using hemoglobin spectroscopy in humans.


BACKGROUND Inappropriate therapies are frequently delivered by implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). We have investigated muscle perfusion as a means of augmenting arrhythmia discrimination by using implanted near-infrared spectroscopy. OBJECTIVE To evaluate hemodynamic stability by monitoring muscle perfusion from within the ICD pocket, in… (More)
