Objectives. The aim was to study the physiological effects of induced ventricular fibrillation and subsequent circulatory arrest for defibrillation threshold testing on the brain using the EEG, jugular bulb oxymetry and near-infrared spectroscopy. Methods. Thirteen patients undergoing surgery for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator implantation or replacement under general anesthesia were included. We continuously monitored the jugular bulb oxygen saturation (SjO2), regional oxygen… CONTINUE READING
