Table 1 Vagal stimulation and LFAC parameters used in the set of n=5 successful experiments. The LFAC waveform was strictly applied at 1 Hz. The average percent block amongst n = 5 experiment was calculated to be 87.2 ± 8.8 % (± SD). Two pulse widths, 1000 μsec and 100 μsec, were used for Swine ID 13525. The voltage drop across the blocking electrodes were within the Water window of the electrodes. *In one case, instrumentation issues did not allow for the retrieval of the LFAC voltage
