Tissue thickness and epicardial dominant frequencies during ventricular fibrillation

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Linear regression to quantify correlation between tissue thickness and dominant frequencies. Results from 31 trials in animals showed that the average (in time) dominant frequencies during 30 seconds of VF were correlated with tissue thickness (p < 0.05 using ANOVA). The results showed that the average rate of activation during VF is higher in those ventricular regions where the tissue mass is larger. These results are consistent with the multiple wavelet hypothesis of VF and may have implications in study of VF in diseased and hypertrophied hearts.
