What is the probability of successful defibrillation at the clinically used DFT energy)? The probability of successful defibrillation at the DFT energy depends on the steps taken to define the threshold. g. energy with a 99% success rate) and decremented by several joules with each VF induction until a shock fails (at which point a rescue shock is delivered). The DFT in this protocol is defined as the lowest energy shock that succeeds (Fig. 29). Since the initial energies tested are at the upper end of the dose–response curve, successive shocks may have a 98%, 95%, 88%, 85% (and so on) likelihood of success, depending on the starting energy and size of the steps taken.
