An electrode adapted for implantation on or about the heart and for connection to a system for monitoring or stimulating cardiac activity includes an electrode tip which has one electrode at the far or distal end of the electrode tip. The distal end of the electrode further includes a screen capable of conducting electrical signals and pulses. An insulative masking member is positioned over a portion of the screen to define an electrical conducting surface. A conductor for carrying current is located within the electrode tip and is electrically connected to the conducting surface.
