A new electrocardiographic predictor of the likelihood that an electrical shock would restore a perfusing rhythm is described. The intent was to develop a prognosticator that would be displayed during precordial compression. We anticipated that such a predictor would allow more selective timing of electrical shocks and reduce electrical injury to the myocardium caused by repetitive shocks. In a porcine model of cardiac arrest because of ventricular fibrillation, electrocardiographic recordings… CONTINUE READING
