Recorded heart sounds for identification of ventricular tachycardia.


BACKGROUND The ECG discrimination of ventricular tachycardia (VT) vs. supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is both important and often difficult. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that recorded digital cardiac acoustical data reflect hemodynamic changes that can be used for VT detection. METHODS We studied 57 subjects (42 males, mean age 57, range 24… (More)
