Abstract

How the electrical field (currents, voltages, and energy) is distributed inside the heart during defibrillation is important in determining optimum strategies for defibrillation, such as optimal placement of electrodes. An experimental technique for three-dimensional measurements of electrical fields in an isolated dog heart is described. The results are compared with computer simulations carried out on the same heart using finite-element analysis.
