Ammann et al developed an algorithm for detecting the loss of left ventricular capture during cardiac resynchronization therapy based on changes in the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). This can be helpful when a programming device is not available. The authors are from University Hospital Basel and Kantonsspital St. Gallen in Switzerland and Herz-Zentrum Bad Krozingen in Germany.
