Despite the advent of coronary care units and more aggressive management of the patient with acute myocardial infarction, the mortality rate due to the cardiogenic-shock—low-output failure syndrome remains unacceptably high. Paired pacing has been suggested as a mode of therapy because of its powerful inotropic effects but has not been extensively used because of the hazard of producing ventricular fibrillation. Previous work in this laboratory has shown that paired pacing of the canine heart after coronary artery ligation results in fatal ventricular fibrillation. The purpose of this study was to observe the combined use of paired pacing and various antiarrhythmic
