An electrode for use in cardiac pacemaking has a conductive tip portion including a substrate composed of a material conventionally employed for pacing electrodes, and a layer of film of iridium oxide overlying the surface of the substrate. The tip portion may be provided with recesses to which the iridium oxide surface layer may be confined. An iridium oxide layer may be formed on both the cathode and the anode for efficient transduction at the electrode-electroyte interface in the environment of the pacemaker patient's body.
