abstract

  • Thoracic fluid accumulation, as indicated by decreasing intrathoracic impedance, was more likely to occur immediately after the onset of persistent AT/AF, especially in the presence of inadequate rate control. Likewise, the onset of persistent AT/AF was more likely following a decrease in intrathoracic impedance.
