About this book


Since 1958, when the first cardiac pacing system was implanted, the exemplary collaboration between medicine and engineering has developed into an extremely successful therapy. The book highlights many of the recent and most important technological advances and shows the multidisciplinary nature of the technical task of pacemaker development which is based on the diverse components of physiology, electronics, physics, electrochemistry and the material sciences.
