  1. Stimulation mode.
  2. BiV: Biventricular dual cathodic. RA-LVP: Right atrium-left ventricle. RA-RVP: Right atrium-right ventricle. HR (bpm): Heart rate beats per minute. SAP (mmHg): Systolic arterial pressure. DAP (mmHg): Diastolic arterial pressure. MAP (mmHg): Mean arterial pressure. CO (L/min): Cardiac output. SvO2 (%): Mixed venous oxygen saturation. *p < 0.05;** p < 0.01.
