AbstractA defibrillator/pacer having separate energy storage circuits for pacing and defibrillating. The pacing energy storage is charged from residual energy from the defibrillator source to permit high energy pacing after defibrillation. In operation, energy is transferred from the defibrillation energy storage source to the pacing energy storage source which is utilized to provide energy for pacing the heart after defibrillation.
