Abstract:

A cardiac pacemaker monitoring system was developed for use in testing cardiac pacemakers in RF fields. The system provided for both continuous monitoring of the pacemaker output and simulating normal cardiac activity at the pacemaker leads. Fiber optics techniques were used to provide the necessary electrical isolation of the pacemaker. Tests have shown that the monitoring system does not significantly affect pacemaker response to RF fields.
