Just after a heart attack or if you experience some pain in your chest or trouble breathing, your cardiologist post a number of invasive and non-invasive investigations can recommend the use of a pacemaker – an electrical device that is placed near your heart and ensures that your heart pumps blood at the right intervals. Please note that a pacemaker is usually recommended by a cardiologist if your heart is beating too fast or slowly, if your heart doesn’t beat regularly and if there is a block in heart’s electrical pathway. In all these conditions, a pacemaker is the best option for you. A cardiologist post reviewing your heart condition can recommend the same and this recommendation is a safe and tested choice.
The device controls the heart beat and it is usually out under the skin, just under the collar bone. It is then hooked up to the heart with the use of tiny wires. Please note that the pacemaker has batteries than may wear out after 10 years. Accordingly, you may have to get the machine replaced. The regulated heart beat created by the pacemaker ensures that your body gets the oxygen that it needs.
