A system for pacing in a right and its corresponding left heart chamber provides a predetermined or programmable triggered delay in a predetermined or programmable, right-to-left or left-to right sequence without first determining from which of the two chambers a triggering event originated. Devices that provide cardio defibrillation today often have pacemakers for delivering adjunct therapies, and such devices can also use the invention.
