Pacemaker Implant

Service:

An artificial pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside the chest or attached externally for temporary use. A pacemaker may be needed when problems occur with the electrical conduction system of the heart. Problems with the heart rhythm may cause difficulties because the heart is unable to pump an adequate amount of blood to the body. If the heart rate is too slow, the blood is pumped too slowly. If the heart rate is too fast or too irregular, the heart chambers are unable to fill up with enough blood to pump out with each beat.
