What is a pacemaker and what is it for?

Also known as a cardiac pacing device, it is a small device that is implanted in your chest to help control your heart beat and prevent the heart from beating too slowly. Its main function is ensure a minimum heart rate.

The heart of a resting adult should beat between 60 and 100 times a minute under normal conditions. When there is bradycardia, beats less than 60 times per minutewhich can be a serious problemas it does not pump enough blood to oxygenate the whole body.

This is implanted in a “pocket” under a chest muscle, mainly from the pectoral muscles, and from there internally come the cables that go to insert a vein that will eventually reach the heart,” he replied to clarion the cardiologist Mario Boschis, member of the SAC.

What are “latest generation” pacemakers?

“At the moment pacemakers allow you to store a large amount of datafrom the most basic information that tells us in what percentage of the time the heart has been stimulated, to more sophisticated information in which the different types of arrhythmias that the patient could present are recorded and stored. It is equivalent to having a Holter recording 365 days a year”, indicated Claudio Militello, also a former director of the Council of Electrophysiology and Arrhythmias of the SAC.

How is a pacemaker placed?

“The surgery is generally low-risk and is often performed under local anesthesia”, Boskis clarified regarding instruments of this type that carry cables. The procedure usually takes between an hour and an hour and a half, he estimated. And he added that many times patients stay in the hospital for 24 hours for follow-up.

While, leadless pacemakers are smaller and generally require easier surgery to implant them.

The procedure is characterized by being minimally invasive and is performed by moving the device through the femoral vein located in the leg from the patient to his heart, where it is finally inserted to stay there, explained the Argentine Federation of Cardiology (FAC).

“It’s a intervention that takes a few minutes and allows the patient to immediately resume his normal life the next day“, highlighted the FAC.
