[Non-invasive programmed transthoracic ventricular stimulation].


In 10 healthy volunteers programmed transthoracic stimulation of the ventricles was performed using two commercially available non-invasive pacemakers. The connection of the oesophageal stimulator SP-5 with the transthoracic ventricular stimulator NP-4D made it possible to obtain a two-lead ECG tracing without artefacts. The quality of the obtained tracings (surface tracing and oesophageal tracing) made it possible to assess accurately the ventriculo-atrial conduction. The examinations performed indicate the practical use of combined oesophageal and transthoracic stimulation during non-invasive diagnosis.
