HI Benjamin,

We do not currently have a published tutorial for external defibrillation.
However, external defibrillation is functionally similar to ICD, the only
difference is the geometry of the sources. We have done this by generating a
geometry in the shape of the paddle or pad to use in the model, placing the
mesh to intersect the torso surface, calculating the intersection of the
paddle mesh and the torso, then applying the sources to an element or two
thickness based on the intersection. The modules needed to do this are the
same as used in the ICD example, except the GetDomainBounday module used to
extract the torso surface (use a range 0 to 12 or the max value of the
segmentation). CalculateDistanceToFIeld can be used to with
CalculateFieldData to assign the source values. The rest is the same. If
you need more direction, I can walk you through the details.
