- The specific manner in which a pacemaker operates to provide a supporting cardiac rhythm. Also called "pacing mode." Such modes are often described by a letter code. An example is VVIR, which denotes that the pacemaker paces in the Ventricle, senses in the Ventricle, responds by Inhibiting, and has a Rate Responsive pacing capability.ÿThere are no known contraindications for the use of pacing as a therapeutic modality to control heart rate. The patients age and medical condition, however, may dictate the particular pacing system, mode of operation, and implantation procedure used by the physician. [DX2PIM 1-5]
