Abstract

For many years implantable devices for cardiac pacing applications have been developed with the main aim of treating AV block and sinus node dysfunction. With the introduction of rate-responsive pacing in 1983, different kinds of sensors have been developed, clinically validated and introduced into the clinical practice for driving rate adaptive pacemakers.
