The defibrillators also deliver electrical shock without a delay (the pacing can happen while charging the capacitor), which could provideÂ safer and less painful anti-tachycardia pacing. Their final novel feature is a diagnostic function that helps doctors monitor fluid build up in the lungs. The fluid status technology can indicate the early warning signs of deteriorating heart failure.
