This research study is being done to see whether general anesthesia (GA) affects our ability
to start ventricular tachycardia (VT) during an VT ablation procedure.
Data collected during this research study will help electrophysiologists and
anesthesiologists to make the best decisions about the best anesthetic conditions to use to
perform VT ablations.
This research study is a "pilot" study. Pilot studies are done on a small group of subjects
to learn if a larger study would be useful.
- Patients with VT and have an implanted ICD who are scheduled for VT catheter
- Patients 18 years of age or older
- Patients with difficult airway management or patients with contra/ relative contra
indication for general anesthesia or known allergies to any of the proposed
- Women who are pregnant
