Early in 1958 u^hile attending a surgical conference in the United States I learned of the experimentation that Drs. Lillehei and Zoll had been conducting in stimulating the heart witb external electrodes and pacemakers. Most of the equipment used home-lighting system 110-volt power. Upon my return to Colombia. J conducted a variety of animal experiments with different power sources and electronic circuits, hoping to devise an implantable pacemaker. The devices were to be encased in silicone… Expand

It is predicted that with such a machine it should be possible to defibrillate the human heart across the unopened chest initially, and then to arouse it from ventricular standstill, maintaining circulation until an orderly, effective spontaneous rhythm reappeared. Expand
