The goal of this study was to determine whether delivering transvenous defibrillation shocks, coordinated with the up/down-slope VF waveform patterns in the shocking lead, would improve the probability of successful defibrillation. Anesthetized swine (32-38 kg, n = 8) were implanted with an RV-->SVC + SQArray transvenous system to measure VF waveform patterns and to deliver shocks. The shocks were generated by a Cardiac Pacemakers Inc. biphasic waveform generator. Energy required for 50… CONTINUE READING
