Example text

If the excess is of negative charge carriers, then they are the majority carriers, and the positive charge carriers are the minority carriers. Cc TϪ Rw Ϫ Rc Rt IPG Ca i0 Tϩ Rw ϩ Ra Figure 1-20. A simplified equivalent circuit for a cardiac pacemaker. T − and T + are, respectively, the negative (cathode) and positive (anode) terminals of the pulse generator (in a unipolar device, T + is inside the can). RW− is the resistance of the conductor wire leading to the distal tip of the lead (cathode), whereas RW+ is that of the wire leading to the bipolar lead’s proximal ring electrode or the unipolar pulse generator’s can.

Concentration Polarization and Ohmic Polarization As a result of the electric potential gradients produced by the pulse near the electrode, local accumulations and depletions of ionic species occur. In a manner dependent on elapsed time, ion charge, ion mass, and other factors, ions in an electrolyte subject to an electric field become grouped by charge sign. This grouping by charge sign is concentration polarization. Concentration polarization disappears as a slow decay of the potential difference between the charge grouping sites.

The same equation applies, except that v is now the instantaneous voltage between the leads at the pulse generator, i is the current in the leads, and t begins with pulse onset and ends at the onset of the next pulse. Then Wt represents, over one stimulus cycle, the total energy dissipation around the whole circuit external to the pulse generator. A question of interest is how much the energy dissipation obtained in this computationally accurate way, 32 Section One: Basic Principles of Device Therapy by using voltage and current waveforms, differs in various clinical situations from that obtained by using the PSA.
