Francis M Charbonnier, Paul V Long: Defibrillator with means for determining patient impedance and delivered energy. Hewlett Packard Company, Stephen P Fox, May 11, 1982: US04328808 (50 worldwide citation)

A defibrillator apparatus applies defibrillation a shock pulse to a patient at a selected energy level. The peak current magnitude of the pulse is sensed and processed to produce an indication of the value of transthoracic load resistance presented by the patient during the pulse. Also produced is a ...
