Example text

The second situation is that the pulse generator has a very low impedance during the time between pulses. In that case, the Helmholtz capacitance charge dissipates in part by forcing current flow in the reverse direction through the leads. The third situation is that, when the pacemaker negative-going pulse stops, the pulse generator within microseconds emits a second pulse of polarity opposite to the first. This actively discharges the Helmholtz capacitance, and undesirable electrochemical reactions occurring at the electrode and in the tissue may be aborted or reversed.

The bottom trace shows the voltage response. At the end of each phase, the voltage measured at the pulse generator terminals initially goes rapidly toward zero but then, partway toward zero, it begins to change only slowly. This is the effect of discharge of the Helmholtz capacitor into the surrounding electrolyte. This voltage response between phases is a function of the rates of ion movement in the electrolyte. Figure 1-17. Effect of near-zero delay between phases on voltage response to biphasic constant-current pulse.

When the stimulus is biphasic with almost no delay between phases, the slow decay of voltage at the end of the first phase is aborted by the beginning of the second, opposite-polarity, phase. 26 Section One: Basic Principles of Device Therapy Figure 1-18. Voltage response to uniphasic constant-current pulse applied across defibrillator epicardial patch electrodes in saline. Here, one large and one small epicardial patch electrode were placed at opposite ends of a foot-long plastic basin filled with normal saline.
