Evaluation of defibrillation safety and shock reduction in implantable cardioverter-defibrillator patients with increased time to detection: A randomized SANKS study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The need for ways to minimize the number of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) shocks is increasing owing to the risk of its adverse effects on life expectancy. Studies have shown that a longer detection time for ventricular tachyarrhythmia reduces the safety of therapies, in terms of syncope and mortality, but not substantially in… (More)
