Influence of the shape of the pacing pulse on ventricular excitation threshold and the function of skeletal muscles in the operating field during non-invasive transcutaneous cardiac pacing under general anaesthesia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Transcutaneous cardiac pacing (TCP) in patients under general anesthesia does not pose a problem of pain threshold for high amplitudes of pacing pulses, but their application causes contractions of skeletal muscles, which is a problem during surgery. Evaluation of the influence of various shapes of the pacing pulse on the ventricular excitation… (More)
