The right side of the heart pumps blood through the lungs where it picks up oxygen and the left side receives this oxygenated blood and pumps it to the rest of the body.
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, is delivered by a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you.
