Motivated by a common practice in cardiology, we analyze the dynamics of a demand paced system where one seeks to create a stable periodic response. By using techniques originally developed for controlling chaotic systems, one can enhance the information contained in time series regarding hidden, unstable periodic orbits. This makes it possible, for example, to track drifts in a system‘s dynamics.
