Since the introduction of implantable cardiac pacing systems there have been marked advances in concept and design of the equipment available. Whereas intracardiac pacing is usually identified with A-V conduction disturbances, recently gained knowledge of cardiac physiology has shown that electrical stimulation of the heart can be beneficial in the treatment of many arrhythmias. It is important that the physician familiarize himself with the different modalities of pacing. The terminology used to describe the different concepts must be clear and precise so the physician can select the proper pacemaker concept for his patient without ambiguity.
