Enhanced detection criteria in implantable cardioverter-defibrillators to avoid inappropriate therapy.

Abstract

The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of enhanced detection criteria, stability and sudden onset, for ventricular tachycardia (VT) in the therapy of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). These detection enhancements ensure a high specificity in detecting VT, thereby avoiding inappropriate therapy delivery due to… (More)
