We read with interest the article of Cmorej et al. (1) – Inappropriate shocks from subcutaneous implantable cardioverter – defibrillator induced by chest compressions, published in the Cardiology Letters. A similar case report also was presented by Berkovitz et al. (2) in Pacing Clinical Electrophysiology in 2018. These two case reports are probably the only presented cases of inappropriate shocks of subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) induced by the oversensing of artefacts of chest compressions.
