Summary of "The low acute effectiveness of a high-power short duration radiofrequency current application technique in pulmonary vein isolation for atrial fibrillation."

Application of high power radiofrequency (RF) energy for a short duration (HPSD) to isolate pulmonary vein (PV) is an emerging technique. But power and duration settings are very different across different centers. Moreover, despite encouraging preclinical and clinical data, studies measuring acute effectiveness of various HPSD settings are limited.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.

Electronic devices that increase the magnitude of a signal's power level or current.

Devices that control the supply of electric current for running electrical equipment.

Monoquaternary homolog of PANCURONIUM. A non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent with shorter duration of action than pancuronium. Its lack of significant cardiovascular effects and lack of dependence on good kidney function for elimination as well as its short duration of action and easy reversibility provide advantages over, or alternatives to, other established neuromuscular blocking agents.

An intravenous anesthetic with a short duration of action that may be used for induction of anesthesia.
