Related to unsynchronized: synchronising


(sing′krŏ-nīz″) [Gr. synchronizein, to be contemporary with],


To coordinate the timing of two or more events or processes. In electrical cardioversion, for example, a shock to the heart is delivered when an R wave is detected on a cardiac monitor. Synchronized shocks are used to treat rhythms such as atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, or supraventricular tachycardia, in which QRS complexes are recognizable. In these arrhythmias, unsynchronized shocks might induce ventricular fibrillation.
synchronization (-nĭ-zā′shŏn)


arranging that events shall occur at the same time.
