Detection of rapid changes in ventricular refractoriness in human studies.


Conventional determination of the ventricular effective refractory period (VERP) is unsuitable for detection of rapid fluctuations in the effective refractory period (ERP). A programmed stimulation system was developed that adapts continuous atrioventricular sequential pacing, incremental extrastimulus interval (S1S2) scanning, and automatic detection of… (More)
