AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to present an application of fuzzy rules to adaptive heart pacing, based on control signals commonly used in existing pacemakers (acceleration, ventilatory flow, QT interval in electrocardiogram). Physiological signals of healthy subjects are used to define fuzzy rules for pacing. These rules are then individualized for the patients. Linear and intelligent combinations of different rules are investigated and 'optimal' rules are suggested. The general structure of hardware implementation of pacemaker controller is presented.
