Right Ventricular Defibrillation Lead Select Site Study

This study will compare single coil right ventricular defibrillation leads for implanted cardioverter/defibrillators (ICDs) in the apical and high septal locations. It is hypothesized tha...

Cardioverter Defibrillator Replacement With Induction of Ventricular Fibrillation and Defibrillation Testing

The SIMPLE study was a large one, and lasted quite a few years due to its design as a randomized controlled trial and the follow up needed to reach an endpoint. The investigators aim to co...

DOuble SEquential External Defibrillation for Refractory VF

Despite significant advances in resuscitation efforts, there are some patients who remain in refractory ventricular fibrillation (VF) during out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Double sequenti...

Effect of Right Ventricular Lead Position on Defibrillation Threshold

The purpose of this study is to determine how the position of the right ventricular (RV) coil of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (apex versus septum) affects the defibrillation t...

AVAI: Atrial Ventricular Arrythmia Incidence

The purpose of this observational study is to collect data regarding the population of patients implanted with St. Jude Medical ICD.

End-tidal carbon dioxide and defibrillation success in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Basing on the relationship between the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the responsiveness of VF to the defibrillation we aimed to assess whether the values of ETCO2 in the minute be...

Low-Energy Defibrillation with Nanosecond Electric Shocks.

Reliable defibrillation with reduced energy deposition has long been the focus of defibrillation research. We studied the efficacy of single shocks of 300 nanosecond duration in defibrillating rabbit ...

Automated external defibrillators and defibrillation electrodes from major manufactures depict placement of the left apical defibrillation electrode poorly!

Real-Time Ventricular Fibrillation Amplitude-Spectral Area Analysis to Guide Timing of Shock Delivery Improves Defibrillation Efficacy During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in Swine.

The ventricular fibrillation amplitude spectral area (AMSA) predicts whether an electrical shock could terminate ventricular fibrillation and prompt return of spontaneous circulation. We hypothesized ...

Saving lives with public access defibrillation: A deadly game of hide and seek.

Early defibrillation is a critical link in the chain of survival. Public access defibrillation (PAD) programmes utilising automated external defibrillators (AEDs) aim to decrease the time-to-first-sho...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cardiac electrical stimulators that apply brief high-voltage electroshocks to the HEART. These stimulators are used to restore normal rhythm and contractile function in hearts of patients who are experiencing VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION or ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) that is not accompanied by a palpable PULSE. Some defibrillators may also be used to correct certain noncritical dysrhythmias (called synchronized defibrillation or CARDIOVERSION), using relatively low-level discharges synchronized to the patient's ECG waveform. (UMDNS, 2003)

A sudden CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA (e.g., VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION) caused by a blunt, non-penetrating impact to the precordial region of chest wall. Commotio cordis often results in sudden death without prompt cardiopulmonary defibrillation.

A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia characterized by an extremely rapid, hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia (150-300 beats/min) with a large oscillating sine-wave appearance. If untreated, ventricular flutter typically progresses to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.

Isoforms of MYOSIN TYPE II, specifically found in the ventricular muscle of the HEART. Defects in the genes encoding ventricular myosins result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.

An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).
