Determining the optimal paddle force for external defibrillation.
In summary, 8-kg paddle force achieves 95% of the overall attainable decrease in TTI when using adult defibrillation paddles placed in an anterior-apical position. We recommend that this is the minimum force that should be applied, with a maximum force of 12 kg if physically possible.

Abstract

In summary, 8-kg paddle force achieves 95% of the overall attainable decrease in TTI when using adult defibrillation paddles placed in an anterior-apical position. We recommend that this is the minimum force that should be applied, with a maximum force of 12 kg if physically possible.
