Intracardiac electrocardiography via a "saline-filled central venous catheter electrocardiographic lead": a historical perspective.

Abstract

The author describes his experience with a "saline-filled central venous catheter electrocardiographic lead" for the recording of intracardiac electrocardiograms provides a brief description of the methodology, refers to this modality's clinical usefulness, furnishes 2 examples illustrating the contribution of the method to clinical diagnosis, and outlines his literature search to find the discoverer/originator of the employment of a saline-filled intracardiac catheter as an electrocardiogram recording lead.
