Atrial arrhythmias were induced in experiments on dogs by electrical stimulation or by local application of aconitine and methacholine to the atrium. The action of the defibrillator discharge on these arrhythmias was studied. The defibrillator discharge abolished the arrhythmias maintained by the circus movement of the excitation wave over the atria but did not abolish sinus tachycardia or ectopic aconitine tachysystoles. The threshold of the defibrillating effect depends on the existence of… CONTINUE READING
