BACKGROUND We investigated an electrocardiographic signal analysis technique for predicting whether an electrical shock would reverse ventricular fibrillation (VF) in an effort to minimize the damaging effects of repetitive shocks during CPR. METHODS AND RESULTS An established model of CPR was utilized. VF was electrically induced in anesthetized 40 kg domestic pigs. Defibrillation was attempted after either 4 or 7 min of untreated VF. Failing to reverse VF, a 1 min interval of precordial… CONTINUE READING
