An automatic capture threshold determination system and method apply pacing pulses to a patient's heart while simultaneously monitoring intracardiac electrical activity to detect evoked cardiac contractions. The system and method automatically adjust the energy of the applied pacing pulses in accordance with a prearranged routine, until capture is obtained, thereby determining the minimum pulse amplitude required to reliably stimulate the heart.
