Pacing and defibrillation systems monitor and treat inappropriate cardiac rhythms. These rhythms result in cardiac outputs (COs) that are inadequate to meet metabolic demands and are often life threatening. Currently, over 600,000 Americans have pacemakers, and 150,000 have implantable cardioverter- defibrillators (ICDs) (1).
