The known effect of high current density under the perimeter of defibrillation electrodes, leading to skin damage and even severe burns in some cases, has been considered by many investigators. Two main approaches for improvement were proposed: (i) interfacing with layers of varying and high resistivity and (ii) lengthening and shaping the perimeter line. Using finite element and physical modelling, it is shown that the second approach does not yield significant improvement in the distribution… CONTINUE READING
