Electrical stimulation of irritable tissue by a current source not only provides well defined stimulation but gives also the possibility to test whether the pulse amplitude, duration and rate are tolerable or not in order to prevent undesirable electrode reactions. This test can be very easily performed by recording the voltage developed between the stimulating electrodes as a function of time. This voltage must never reach constant value after a period of time.
