Esophageal Electrocardiography and Low-Energy Ventricular Defibrillation
Although the esophageal site for ECG electrodes is well established, it is seldom, if ever, applied during CPR. Our laboratory studies demonstrated unique advantages in the stability of the ECG records obtained during chest compression, results of which were confirmed in anesthetized patients during simulated CPR.
