WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Cheney was back at work Tuesday after doctors administered an electric shock to his heart, restoring it to a normal rhythm.

Cheney's press secretary Megan Mitchell says the VP feels fine and is not in any pain.

Cheney experienced an irregular heartbeat Monday. He was sedated at George Washington University Hospital Monday night to allow doctors to administer an electrical impulse to his heart.

Cheney has a history of heart problems, including four heart attacks, quadruple bypass surgery, two artery-clearing angioplasties and an operation to implant a defibrillator.
