Abstract

The purpose of the simulator is to establish the on demand function of pacemakers and to test electrocardiogram monitors and pacemaker test equipment. With this device, one can simulate the electrical behaviour of a paced heart, differentiating between natural sinus beats and paced beats. In addition, one can also define the refractory periods of both the pacemaker and the patient.
