Noninvasive pacing: what you should know

Physio-Control devices use a pacing impulse duration of 20ms while ZOLL uses a pacing impulse duration of 40ms. A study by Falk et. al. demonstrates there is no statistically significant difference between Physio-Control and ZOLL pacing technologies in terms of capture thresholds, capture rates, or pain. Read clinical summary.

Noninvasive pediatric pacing

Noninvasive pacing offers a rapid and effective way to institute ventricular pacing in children. It can be easily initiated by paramedics, nurses, and physicians. Read clinical summary. 

Noninvasive pacing: artifact masquerading as capture

In some cases, artifact following the pacing current may masquerade as capture. This summary will help you better understand the phenomenon, differentiate between capture and artifact, remedy the problem, and anticipate additional problems associated with monitoring the externally paced patient. Read clinical summary.

Noninvasive pacing: capture assessment

Interpretation of the externally paced ECG is not always simple. This article illustrates typical paced ECGs and discusses pacing captures. Read article.

Noninvasive pacing: demand mode and sensing

Fixed-rate (non-demand) pacemakers gave way to demand pacemakers because the latter had one tremendous advantage: demand pacemakers do not compete with the heart’s intrinsic electrical activity; they deliver pacing pulses only when the heart fails to produce its own beat. Read clinical summary.
