90,91 These benefits must be weighed against the morbidity accrued by the requirement of a second shock and consequences of an extended C H AP T E R 1 Clinically Relevant Basics of Pacing and Defibrillation period of ventricular tachyarrhythmia. Thus, the energy programmed should be a value high enough above the DFT to ensure that the shock is on the “plateau” of the dose–response curve, where success rates exceed 90%, but not necessarily at maximum output. 94 Strategies using one defibrillation shock, or using no VF inductions, are emerging and increasingly used in practice, and discussed below.

Thoracic defibrillation, an ascending ramp waveform has a much higher success rate with the same delivered current than does a descending ramp (Fig. 30). 116 However, because of the importance of using physically small circuits for implantable devices, a capacitor discharge, which more closely resembles the descending ramp is employed in devices. in implantable devices has been toward smaller capacitors to create smaller devices. The charge stored by a capacitor is defined by Creating the defibrillation waveform As in pacing, the battery serves as the source of electrical charge for cardiac stimulation in defibrillation.
