Advances in cardiac pacing have greatly reduced the size of pacemakers, while improving their longevity and reliability, expanding their clinical applications and increasing their sophistication in terms of programming and automatic features. Significant reductions in the size of pacing systems have been mainly due to improvements in power sources, increased circuit integration, hybrid packaging, and the development of smaller leads and lead connectors. The use of sophisticated microprocessors has transformed some pacemakers into implantable computers. The incorporation of memory is enabling modern pacing devices to become more like Holter monitors, able to store significant amounts of intracardiac data. A trend toward the use of sensor technology has enabled pacemakers to provide rate response, taking the place of a damaged sinus node
