Abstract

The hemodynamic sequelae of sequential atrioventricular pacing were compared to those of atrial and ventricular pacing and analyzed. The results clearly demonstrate that aberrant ventricular depolarization per se is of relatively minor hemodynamic import but that sequential atrial and ventricular activity is essential for optimal ventricular function even in the normal subject.
