Abstract

Introduction: The capability of amplitude spectrum area (AMSA) to predict the success of defibrillation (DF) was retrospectively evaluated in a large database of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. Methods: Electrocardiographic data, including 1260 DFs, were obtained from 609 cardiac arrest patients due to ventricular fibrillation. AMSA sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, and positive and negative predictive values (PPV, NPV) for predicting DF success were calculated, together with receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves. Successful DF was defined as the presence of spontaneous rhythm ≥40. bpm starting within 60. s from the DF. In 303 patients with chest compression (CC) depth data collected with an accelerometer, changes in AMSA were analyzed in relationship to CC depth. Results: AMSA was significantly higher prior to a successful DF than prior to an unsuccessful DF (15.6. ±. 0.6 vs. 7.97. ±. 0.2. mV-Hz, p97%. Area under the ROC curve was 0.84. CC depth affected AMSA value. When depth was 1.75. in. (p
