34). Therefore, the question of how to determine the “dose” of a shock arises. It is clearly important, because shocks of insufficient dose fail to terminate fibrillation and excessively strong shocks can lead to proarrhythmia or myocardial injury. The “dose” of defibrillation is usually given in units of energy (joules) on the basis of tradition and ease of measurement. 69 To add to the complexity, energy Refractory period shortening The first phase of a biphasic pulse may shorten the refractory period of myocardial cells.

However, if enough repetitions were performed, a population of DFTs, as shown in (B), would be created. The most commonly observed DFT in this example would be 10 J, which has a 70% likelihood of success. Further details in text. 89 In other words, if a defibrillator is programmed to the stepdown to failure DFT energy for its first shock, the likelihood that that first shock will succeed can range from 25% to 88%, but on average will be 71%. In contrast to the step-down to failure DFT, in a step-up to success DFT, low-energy shocks are deliv- ered during VF with incremental doses of energy until a first success occurs, which defines the DFT.
