  1. An analysis of the cost effectiveness of the implantable defibrillator.

    Article - En anglais

    The automatic implantable defibrillator has been shown to decrease the mortality of patients who have survived cardiac arrest due to ventricular tachycardia of fibrillation and are at high risk for recurrence.

    We performed a cost-effectiveness analysis of this seemingly expensive new technology with data obtained from the 1984 Medicare data base, the medical literature, Medicare carriers, individual pharmacies and hospitals, and expert opinion.

    Analyzing combinations of principal and secondary discharge diagnoses across 18 diagnosis-related groups, we estimated the cost of hospitalization for a comparison group of patients.
