A pacemaker is an electrically charged medical device. Your surgeon implants it under your skin to help manage irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias. Modern pacemakers have two parts. One part is called pulse generator which contains the battery and the electronics that control your heartbeat. The other part has one or more leads to send electrical signals to your heart. Leads are small wires that run from the pulse generator to your heart.
Pacemakers generally treat two types of arrhythmias:
Tachycardia, a heartbeat that’s too fast
Bradycardia, a heartbeat that’s too slow
Some people need a special type of pacemaker called a biventricular pacemaker or bivent. You may need a bivent if you have severe heart failure. A bivent makes the two sides of the heart beat in sync. This is known as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT).
You need a pacemaker if your heart is pumping too quickly or too slowly. If the heart is beating slowly then the body would not get sufficient blood. If the heart is beating too fast then there is a risk of heart failure. This can cause:
Fainting or lightheadedness
Shortness of breath
Damage to vital organs
Implanting a pacemaker typically takes one to two hours. You’ll receive a sedative to relax you and a local anesthetic to numb the incision site. You’ll be awake during the procedure. Using the wire, your surgeon will attach an electrode to your heart’s right ventricle. The ventricle is the lower chamber of the heart. The other end of the wire attaches to a pulse generator. This contains the battery and electrical circuits.
