In-vitro investigation of very long defibrillation shocks: Design and testing of a capacitor-free defibrillator


The aim of this paper is to describe a defibrillator that allows the delivery of arbitrary waveform shocks, with energy up to 10J and duration up to 100 ms. In addition, data from shocks delivered to isolated rabbitpsilas hearts are presented. The solutions adopted in the design and realization of the defibrillator were: rechargeable battery power; linear… (More)
