2 μF/mm2 (smooth surface) to 40 μF/mm2 (fractal-surface electrode). The area of pacemaker tip electrodes is usually in the range of 4 to 10 mm2. Therefore, the capacitance might be 200 μF or more. The time constant for a 200-μF capacitor C discharging through a 500-Ω resistor R is R × C, or 100 msec. This means that the voltage across the capacitor, or across an ideal electrode-electrolyte interface, if the capacitance were a truly constant 200 μF and the interface impedance Chapter 1: Cardiac Electrical Stimulation 500 Ω, would on discharge decrease from its maximum level to 37% of its maximum level in 100 msec.

At the leading edge of the pulse, polarization is essentially zero. With time (pulse duration), the voltage resulting from polarization (sometimes called polarization overvoltage, Vp) increases. When the pacing pulse is shut off, polarization overvoltage decays exponentially as a result of diffusion. (From Stokes K, Bornzin G: The electrode-biointerface [stimulation].

Thompson, Department of Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham). 5-msec duration. The current and the resultant voltage waveforms are shown in Figure 1-15A. When the pulse starts, the current rises immediately to its set level. It then remains at that level for the duration of the pulse. The voltage response, as measured between the laboratory pulse generator output sockets (which internally connect after each biphasic pulse), is at first a rapid rise (ohmic polarization) followed by a slow, curved-slope rise due to opposite charge accumulations on each side of the electrode-electrolyte interface.
