Example text

The first shock is delivered at 20 J and is successful (S). The next shock, delivered at 15 J, also succeeds. A 10-J shock succeeds, and a 5-J shock fails (F), defining the DFT as 10 J (the lowest successful energy). Note from the curve that the likelihood of success at the DFT energy (10 J) is 70%. Now, if the DFT process were repeated, it is possible that the second shock might fail on one occasion (defining the DFT as 20 J) or that all four shocks might succeed on another occasion (and that a lower energy shock would fail to define the DFT), and so on.
