The efficiencies of four bipolar pulses with different times and shapes were tested. The criterion of threshold energy eliminating 20-sec fibrillation in domestic pigs was used for this purpose. The efficiencies of trapeziform, rectilinear, and quasi-sinusoidal Gurvich–Venin bipolar defibrillation pulses were compared. The shape and time of the pulses corresponded to 100-Ω load regardless of the pig’s chest resistance (high-resistance model). The Gurvich–Venin model was statistically more effective than the trapeziform model and the rectilinear pulse model. The Gurvich–Venin pulse was generated using a digital defibrillator with signal processor. This technology is implemented in imPulse and imPulse PRO defibrillators.
