A heart pacer employing a digital parameter controlling circuit is controlled by data received from an external source, the data preferably being in the form of magnetic pulses of width corresponding to the desired logic state of the parameter controlling signal. The externally transmitted signal which is received by the pacer comprises both parameter data for controlling selected pacer parameter operation and access data which is processed by the pacer for determining whether the parameter data is accepted for control purposes. The access and parameter data components of the externally generated signal are intermixed so that when receipt of the signal is enabled by the pacer, proper receipt of the parameter data is also ensured.
