Preliminary Results on the Prediction of Countershock Success
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
In a study of artifact-free ventricular fibrillation episodes of 54 patients, 28 of whom experienced return of spontaneous circulation, the power of di#erent indicators to predict the return of spontaneous circulation was compared. Taking the average of sensitivity, specificity and positive and negative predictive value, the dominant frequency reaches 76%, the mean amplitude 72% and fibrillation power 71%. All three indicators are shown to expose little correlation.
