Title: Multi-conductor lead

Abstract: The invention resides in a multi-conductor lead comprising an inner tube containing at least two lumens, the tubing having an outer surface defining an outer diameter thereof. Two coiled conductors are housed within the at least two lumens in the tubing and extend longitudinally therewithin. A third coiled conductor is disposed circumferentially about the outer surface of the tubing. Insulation coating is disposed circumferentially about the outer conductor. Accordingly, the outer coil serves to prevent subclavian crush from causing the inner conductors to short to each other.
