A cardiac pacer is described which uses a physiological function such as breathing rate, to vary the production of electronic pulses which are fed to a constant current source connected to the ventricle. A constant source compensates for the fibrotic growths that often occur around the electrodes implanted in the heart. In another variation, the pulses are fed to two separate constant current sources, one connected to the atrium and the other, with delay, to the ventricle.
