Pacemaker Implant

Service:

An artificial pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you or attached externally for temporary use. The pacemaker takes over for your heart's natural pacemaker to maintain a stable heart rate. Electrical impulses from the pacemaker are sent through leads (wires) that are placed into the heart wall to keep your heart beating and pumping. Pacemakers typically are used for slow heartbeats. The pacemaker senses the heart’s electrical activity (rhythm) and sends out an impulse to correct an irregular, slow heartbeat.
