The primary goal of this protocol is to collect ECG signals from paediatric patients using 4 surface electrodes placed in the configurations proposed for the Cameron Health, Inc. subcutaneous implantable defibrillator (S-ICD) system. These signals will then be used to test the S-ICD system for future use in paediatric patients.

Enrollment: 62
Study Start Date: November 2006
Study Completion Date: October 2008
Primary Completion Date: October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The surface ECGs collected from pediatric patients in normal sinus rhythm and a variety of ventricular and atrial arrhythmias will be used as test signals for the development of the S-ICD system. These signals will be collected from patients undergoing electrophysiology (EP) study, transvenous defibrillator implantation or ablation procedures
