Pacemaker Implantation by Dr. Kedar Kulkarni
Pacemaker Implantation by Dr. Kedar Kulkarni, one of the best Cardiologists in Pune.
A pacemaker insertion is the implantation of a small electronic device that is usually placed in the chest (just below the collarbone) to help regulate slow electrical problems with the heart. A pacemaker may be recommended to ensure that the heartbeat does not slow to a dangerously low rate.
Types of pacemakers
Depending on your condition, you might have one of the following types of pacemakers.
Why it's done
Pacemakers are implanted to help control your heartbeat. They can be implanted temporarily to treat a slow heartbeat after a heart attack, surgery or medication overdose. Or they can be implanted permanently to correct a slow or irregular heartbeat or, in some people, to help treat heart failure.
