Daily shock impedance measured by implantable cardioverter defibrillator is useful in the management of congestive heart failure

, : Daily shock impedance measured by implantable cardioverter defibrillator is useful in the management of congestive heart failure. Circulation Journal 70(11): 1462-1465

Background Clinical data suggest that changes in intrathoracic impedance and fluid accumulation in the lung are inversely related.Methods and Results Daily shock impedance (S-IMP) was evaluated in 29 patients in whom a Ventak Prizm 2 was implanted (61 +/- 14 years old). The mean follow-up period was 45 18 weeks, during which 6 patients had episodes of decompensated heart failure (DHF group) and the others did not (NHF group).
