External defibrillators and emergency external pacemakers

F. M. Charbonnier Proceedings of the IEEE, 1996

The first experimental defibrillation occurred in 1900. Zoll first achieved external defibrillation of a human heart in 1956 and the first commercial external manual defibrillators were introduced in 1961. The author discusses the steady improvements in manual defibrillator performance which have occurred since 1961, particularly relating to added functionality, event documentation, and telecommunications, and speculate on likely trends in the ...


Internal atrial defibrillation: the importance of lead location, waveform morphology, and shock synchronization

R. A. S. Cooper Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

Atrial fibrillation (AF) remains the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical medicine and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Electrical cardioversion remains a very effective method for the acute termination of AF. However, the standard method for atrial cardioversion requires shock strengths of 50 to 400 joules delivered across transthoracic cutaneous electrodes. These shocks strengths can be detrimental to ...


Stability analysis of ventricular tachycardia using discrete dynamic models

S. A. Metzler; P. V. Bayly; S. Reek; R. E. Ideker; W. M. Smith Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1997. Proceedings of the 19th Annual International Conference of the IEEE, 1997

This paper presents a stability analysis of ventricular tachycardia (VT). Cardiac electrical activity in 5 sheep with induced myocardial infarction was monitored with endocardial electrodes and on the body surface during and following induction into tachycardia. Consecutive cycle times were used to create a discrete state variable vector. Data were then classified into one of four categories: induction, steady-state tachycardia, ...


Spiral wave meandering in models of ventricular tissue as an antiarrhythmic target

G. P. Kremmydas; A. V. Holden Computers in Cardiology, 2003, 2003

We characterise the effects of ionic conductance and concentration changes on the meandering patterns and dynamics of re-entrant excitation in models of mammalian ventricular tissue. An increase in the spatial extent of spiral wave meander might lead to an increased likelihood of self-termination of the re- entrant excitation, since the probability of the spiral core meeting and annihilating at the ...


Part II--Intracardiac Phonocardiography

D. H. Lewis; G. W. Deitz; J. D. Wallace; J. R. Brown IRE Transactions on Medical Electronics, 1957

Using specially designed catheters and amplifying equipment, studies of intracardiac sounds have been carried out in man at the time of cardiac catheterization. The catheters, either single- or double-lumen, are passed into the lesser circulation under fluoroscopic guidance. The first and second heart sounds are heard in the heart and in the great vessels leading to and from the heart. ...

    The book presents recent advances in signal processing techniques for modeling, analysis, and understanding of the heart's electrical activity during atrial fibrillation. This arrhythmia is the most commonly encountered in clinical practice and its complex and metamorphic nature represents a challenging problem for clinicians, engineers, and scientists. Research on atrial fibrillation has stimulated the development of a wide range of signal processing tools to better understand the mechanisms ruling its initiation, maintenance, and termination. This book provides undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers and practicing engineers, with an overview of techniques, including time domain techniques for atrial wave extraction, time- frequency analysis for exploring wave dynamics, and nonlinear techniques to characterize the ventricular response and the organization of atrial activity. The book includes an introductory chapter about atrial fibrillation and its mechanisms, t eatment, and management. The successive chapters are dedicated to the analysis of atrial signals recorded on the body surface and to the quantification of ventricular response. The rest of the book explores techniques to characterize endo- and epicardial recordings and to model atrial conduction. Under the appearance of being a monothematic book on atrial fibrillation, the reader will not only recognize common problems of biomedical signal processing but also discover that analysis of atrial fibrillation is a unique challenge for developing and testing novel signal processing tools.
