A programmer for a pacemaker which has telemetric capabilities is disclosed. The programmer, in addition to being able to program the pacemaker through telemetric transmission of programming codes can receive digital and analog (including marker) information from the pacemaker for remote display and utilization, and for program modification in response thereto, if desired. Implementation of the programmer is accomplished partly by circuitry which includes pulse duration measurement circuitry for measuring time duration intervals of incoming RF telemetric signals and partly by a firmware program stored in the programmer.
