We describe a rare case of an inappropriate defibrillator discharge during a sinus tachycardia with single fast sensed beats fulfilling the ventricular fibrillation rate criterion, activating the “combined count criterion,” although the prevalent sinus tachycardia was inside a ventricular tachycardia rate zone, programmed to monitor only mode. The “combined count criterion” is a safety feature that ensures defibrillation therapy in case of a tachyarrhythmia inside the ventricular tachycardia… CONTINUE READING
