The use of impedance cardiography for optimizing the interventricular stimulation interval in cardiac resynchronization therapy—a comparison with left ventricular contractility

Abstract

The present study aimed to assess whether impedance cardiography (IC) can correctly identify the optimal interventricular (VV) pacing interval in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Twenty four patients received a biventricular pacemaker and underwent IC for cardiac output (CO) measurements to identify the optimal VV interval. Invasive measurements of… (More)
