- Although differences in HR and the JT interval were statistically significant in patients who received appropriate shock vs. those who did not, these differences are not clinically meaningful
- We did not identify any clinical predictors of early vs. late ICD shocks
- These data suggest that we may not be able to improve on current guidelines for patient selection for ICD implantation.
