Note from the curve that the likelihood of success at the DFT energy (10 J) is 70%. Now, if the DFT process were repeated, it is possible that the second shock might fail on one occasion (defining the DFT as 20 J) or that all four shocks might succeed on another occasion (and that a lower energy shock would fail to define the DFT), and so on. Thus, repeating the DFT determinations may result in different values for the DFT with each determination. However, if enough repetitions were performed, a population of DFTs, as shown in (B), would be created.

From Schuder JC, Rahmoeller GA, Stoeckle H. Transthoracic ventricular defibrillation with triangular and trapezoidal waveforms. Circ Res 1996; 19:689–94. ) thoracic defibrillation, an ascending ramp waveform has a much higher success rate with the same delivered current than does a descending ramp (Fig. 30). 116 However, because of the importance of using physically small circuits for implantable devices, a capacitor discharge, which more closely resembles the descending ramp is employed in devices.
