Pacemaker Implantation at World Best Hospital in India

Description:

A pacemaker is an electrical device that is used to regulate and normalise the rhythm at which the heart works. The rate at which the heart works and the rhythm at which it works are triggered by electrical impulses generated from within the heart. Abnormalities in these electrical impulses result in arrhythmia, where the heart rhythms are too slow, too fast or irregular. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

  Pacemaker Implantation in India
Heart rhythm disorder is a serious medical
condition and could lead to problems ranging from
simple palpitations to sudden death. But the
modern Electrophysiology has provided great
solution to the patients suffering from heart
rhythm problems. The newer techniques and
developments in Electrophysiology have enhanced
the quality of life in these patients to a great
extent. Heart hospitals in India have now the
best electrophysiology teams to offer the best
treatment for patients with heart rhythm
disorders.
The electrophysiology team heart specialists,
vascular surgeons, electrophysiologists are all
board certified and have enormous experience in
electrophysiology studies, radiofrequency
ablations, pacemaker and device implantations and
resynchronization therapy.

What is a Pacemaker?
A pacemaker is an electrical device that is used
to regulate and normalise the rhythm at which the
heart works. The rate at which the heart works
and the rhythm at which it works are triggered by
electrical impulses generated from within the
heart. Abnormalities in these electrical impulses
result in arrhythmia, where the heart rhythms are
too slow, too fast or irregular.
A pacemaker has two components to it the
electric leads which are connected to the heart
and a pulse generator/computer which detects
abnormality in the heart's rhythm and delivers an
electrical impulse to the heart to normalise the
rhythm.

Different Types of Pacemakers
  • Permanent (internal) Heart Pacemaker - This kind
    of Heart Pacemaker is implanted in a small pocket
    under your skin and is meant to be left in there
    for the rest of your life.
  • Temporary (external) Heart Pacemaker - This is
    used for initial stabilization of the patient
    during a cardiac crisis.
  • Demand Heart Pacemaker - This kind of Heart
    PacThis kind of Heart Pacemaker has an inbuilt
    sensing device which senses when the heart beat
    is too slow and turns the signal on.

Single Chamber Heart Pacemaker - This kind of
device has one lead to carry signals to and from
one chamber of your heart, either the right
atrium or, more commonly, the right ventricle.

How is the Pacemaker Implanted?
The pacemaker is implanted, normally in the upper
chest, as part of a surgical procedure performed
under local anaesthesia. The electrophysiologist
/ cardiologist assisted by fluoroscopy imaging,
implants the leads at the designated locations
within the heart, by threading them through veins
leading to the heart. The other end of the leads
is connected to the pulse generator unit which is
implanted in the chest region. This procedure
will take upwards of one hour and can sometimes
take several hours. Once the leads are attached
to the heart as well as the pacemaker, the
cardiologist would test the device to make sure
that electrical impulses are flowing from the
pacemaker to the heart and that the heart rate
and rhythm are being read accurately by the
pacemaker.

Medical Conditions When a Pacemaker is Needed
  • An effective approach to control the bradycardia
    (slow heart beat)
  • It will give relief from irregular heart beat.
  • Keep the heart beating at a rate that allows you
    to continue living a normal life and meet your
    body's demand for oxygen whatever your activity
    level may be
  • Allows you to enjoy a better normal quality life
