Implanting Hope, Restoring Heart Health
Our heart has a natural, built-in pacemaker– the sinoatrial node, that works like an electrical system to control your heartbeat. When the heart's natural pacemaker ceases to function properly, a small, battery-operated device is surgically implanted to help regulate the heartbeat and rhythm.
Pacemakers come in a variety of options like single chamber pacemaker, dual chamber pacemaker, conduction system pacemaker, His bundle pacemaker, and leadless pacemaker. The battery of a pacemaker can last for 8-15 years depending on the complexity of the pacemaker.
Pacemakers can be used to treat a variety of heart conditions, including bradycardia (slow heart rate), heart block, and certain types of arrhythmias (irregular heart rhythms). They respond to changes in activity levels and automatically adjust the heart rate accordingly. Some pacemakers can even monitor the fluid status in the lungs and can detect episodes of apneas.
By keeping the heart beating at a regular pace, pacemakers can drastically reduce the risk of complications and improve quality of life. However, the diagnosis for the need for pacemaker implantation is typically made by a cardiologist based on a combination of medical history, physical examination, and diagnostic tests.
