Table 1 Empiric Arm Programming

From: A trial design for evaluation of empiric programming of implantable cardioverter defibrillators to improve patient management

Detection Interval Beats To Detect Redetect Therapies
VF On 300 ms 18/24 9/12 9/12 30 J × 6
FVT via VF 240 ms NA   Burst (1 sequence), 30 J × 5
VT On ≥ 400 ms* 16 12 Burst (2), Ramp (1), 20 J, 30 J × 3
  1. SVT Criteria On: AF/Afl, Sinus Tach (1:1 VT-ST Boundary = 66%), SVT Limit = 300 ms
  2. Burst ATP: 8 intervals, R-S1 = 88%, 20 ms decrement
  3. Ramp ATP: 8 intervals, R-S1 = 81%, 10 ms decrement
