TABLE S1: Patient Demographics and LV Lead Characteristics. All Data Presented in Mean ± SEM.
TABLE S2: Probability of Phrenic Nerve Stimulation (PNS) at Maximum Pacing Output (10 V, 1.5 milliseconds), at LV Threshold and Different Pacing Strategies to Minimize PNS Between LV Pacing Configurations. LVSM = LV capture safety margin; LVt = LV threshold; PW = pulse width.
