Effective temporary pacing was achieved using the cavity ECG as a guide in twenty-five of twenty-six patients, twenty of whom were too ill to be moved to the fluoroscope.
In all patients U.S.C.I. unipolar or bipolar electrodes were used and in eleven patients this method of pacing was applied during resuscitation; four patients survived to leave hospital.
This technique is described and is recommended for emergency pacing when a bedside image intensifier is unavailable.
