Around 40% of all human deaths are attributed to cardiovascular diseases. Cardiac pacing has become a therapeutic tool used worldwide with over 250.000 pacemaker implants every year. The purpose of this article is to detail the significant advances in cardiac pacing systems. Our focus is on the evolution of circuit designs applied in pacemakers. Future pacemaker features and further improvements are also pointed out.
