Permanent Pacing in the Absence of Heart Block
An Approach to the Management of Intractable Arrhythmias
Permanent pacemakers are useful in the management of certain patients with arrhythmias in the absence of heart block. Five patients are presented, four of whom obtained a satisfactory response to pacing. Continuous electrocardiographic monitoring by means of a magnetic tape system is useful in diagnosis as well as in the evaluation of the effects of therapy.
