If your heart has trouble catching the beat, St. Jude Medical's got rhythm to spare. The company operates through two product segments: Implantable Electronic Systems, (combines the former cardiac rhythm management and neuromodulation divisions) and Cardiovascular and Ablation Technologies (combines the former cardiovascular and atrial fibrillation units). Implantable Electronics, St. Jude's largest unit, includes pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), both of which use electrical impulses to shock irregularly beating hearts back into rhythm. The company sells its products in more than 100 countries; the US is its largest market. St. Jude was formed in 1976.
