Electrical management of ventricular tachycardias with an implanted device is greatly complicated by reduced hemodynamic tolerance to the tachycardia with increasing rate, and by the risk of accelerating the tachycardia into fibrillation. Pacing (extrastimuli, bursts), low-energy cardioversion, and high-energy defibrillation therapies are all useful in(More)
A composite implantable arrhythmia control device (ACD) implements the functions of a bradycardia pacemaker, an antitachycardia pacemaker, a cardioverter, and a defibrillator in an integrated fashion. Given this broad spectrum of functionality, the implant testing for these devices can become a formidable endeavor requiring a large ensemble of expensive,(More)
