Electrode Positions in Cardioverting Atrial Fibrillation


Brief description of study

Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder, and the incidence is rapidly increasing. Cardioversion using an electrical shock (DC-cardioversion) is an important treatment to reduce symptoms and improve patient's quality-of-life. The treatment is performed by applying gel electrodes to the chest. Cardioversion is not always successful, and it is unknown which electrode-position provides the optimal efficacy.

This study aims to compare two electrode positions, which are in clinical use: Anterior-posterior (left front and left back) versus anterior-lateral (right front and left side of the chest).
