Permanent Pacemaker Implantation

A Pacemaker is a small device that sends small electrical impulses to the heart muscle to maintain a suitable heart rate or to stimulate the lower chambers of the heart or ventricles. A pacemaker may also be used to treat fainting spells (syncope). They can also be used to treat congestive heart failure. There are several different types of pacemakers: Single Chamber Pacemaker, Dual Chamber Pacemaker, Biventricular Pacemaker. Your physician will decide what type of pacemaker you need based on your heart condition.
