Abstract Since the discovery that electrical currents were important for cardiac function there has been intense interest in the development of cardiac electrical therapies. The most common cardiac electrical therapies today are pacing and defibrillation, which act to restore mechanical function and blood flow by correcting pathological electrical dysrhythmias. Each year over 100,000 implantable cardioverter […]
