    The experimental results of suppression of cardiac muscle alternans in small pieces of in vitro paced bullfrog cardiac muscle were demonstrated using a simple self-referencing scheme. A large range of physiological conditions over many animals, control was made possible and the self-referencing control protocol was automatically adjusted to changes in paceing interval. The feasibility of developing low-energy methods for maintaining normal cardiac function were suggested by the results.
