Dr Jakob Lüker (University Hospital Cologne, DE) discusses internal vs. external electrical cardioversion of atrail arrhythmias in patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD).


Filmed on site by Radcliffe Cardiology.



1. What is the concern with atrial conversions in patients with AICDs (automated implantable cardioverter defibrillator)? (00:10)

2. How does your study evaluate external atrial conversion in patients with AICD? (01:11)

3. What were your findings? (01:40)

4. What are the implications for atrial cardioversion in practice? (02:29)
