Venin Founder of Biphasic Waveform Defibrillators

  title={Venin Founder of Biphasic Waveform Defibrillators},
  author={Vyacheslav A. Vostrikov and Boris B. Gorbunov and Sergey V. Selishchev},
Igor V. Venin since 1966 and up till now has been an outstanding engineer of the Soviet Union and Ukraine, who has dedicated all his life to defibrillators development. Under his guidance 16 models of DC defibrillators with different waveforms, including the world’s first defibrillator with biphasic waveform (1971) have been developed and put into commercial production.

Construction of Energy-Optimal Smooth Monophasic Defibrillation Pulse Waveforms Using Cardiomyocyte Membrane Model
The use of the Luo-Rudy cardiomyocyte membrane model appears to offer no possibilities for a substantial increase in the energy efficiency (threshold energy ratio reduction) of the classical monophasic defibrillation pulse waveforms.
Automated information-measurement system used to test the immunity of the medical equipment protective elements to the discharges of the defibrillator
Abstract The article discusses the information-measurement system used for testing of protective elements medical equipment for their resistance to the discharge of a defibrillator, which is designed


The nature of electric defibrillation of the heart.
Abstract It has been shown experimentally that electrical defibrillation of the heart is the result of synchronization of separate heart elements. Bipolar impulses have been found to be the most
Naum L Gurvich: A pioneer of defibrillation
It is difficult to imagine modern cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) without using electric defibrillation as its principal component. Our knowledge of the ventricular fibrillation (VF) mechanism
Criteria of efficiency and safety of the defibrillating impulse.
An electro-therapeutic index of the defibrillating action is being suggested as the ratio of the thresholds of energy in joules causing lesions to that causing defibrillation.

What is currently known about ventricular fibrillation (VF) and follows the historical development of efforts to deal with it and advice is given concerning the choice of defibrillators.
Current is better than energy as predictor of success for biphasic defibrillatory shocks in a porcine model of ventricular fibrillation.
In this porcine model of VF within a wide range of transthoracic impedance, peak current was a better indicator for shock success than the currently used energy for biphasic defibrillatory shocks.
Comparison of Effectiveness of Relay-Switched , One-Cycle Quasisinusoidal Waveform with Critically Damped Sinusoid Waveform in Transthoracic Defibrillation of 100-Kilogram Calves
Studies o f 240 transthoracic fibrillation-defibrillation episodes in calves of 91-108 kg are reported. The waveform in 120 o f the episodes was a one-cycle, quasisinusoidal waveform having peak
Comparison of monophasic and biphasic defibrillating pulse waveforms for transthoracic cardioversion. Biphasic Waveform Defibrillation Investigators.
There were no significant differences in patient characteristics, use of antiarrhythmic agents, arrhythmia cycle length, or duration of arrhythmmia prior to shock for monophasic and biphasic waveform groups.
