A system and method for treating an arrhythmia of the heart, involves delivery of anti-tachy pacing (ATP) pulses to the heart, possibly followed by the delivery of a high-voltage shock. ATP delivery is controlled such that the time delivery of any high-voltage shock is not affected by the prior delivery of the ATP pulses. System control may be accomplished using one or more programmable parameters, which may include a user-specified shock energy.
