- Resuscitation after prolonged ventricular fibrillation with use of monophasic and biphasic waveform pulses for external defibrillationC T Leng
Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD, USA
Circulation 101:2968-74. 2000..However, they have not been rigorously tested against monophasic (MP) waveforms in clinical models of external defibrillation, particularly where rescue from prolonged VF is the general rule...
- Electrical induction of ventricular fibrillation for resuscitation from postcountershock pulseless and asystolic cardiac arrestsC T Leng
Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA
Circulation 104:723-8. 2001..It remains unclear, however, whether harmful effects are due primarily to initial countershock of ischemic myocardium or to resultant postdefibrillation rhythms (ie, pulseless electrical activity [PEA] or asystole)...
- Lead configuration for defibrillator implantation in a patient with congenital heart disease and a mechanical prosthetic tricuspid valveC T Leng
Department of Medicine, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Pacing Clin Electrophysiol 24:1291-2. 2001..Their lead configuration deviates substantially from existing designs in its primary use of a coronary sinus defibrillation coil and a left-sided subcutaneous array to distribute current across the ventricular myocardium...
