PACE MAKER IMPLANTATION (PPI)
- Posted on in Cardiology
A Pace Maker is implanted on the upper portion of the chest with its leads going in various chambers of heart. This is done to correct various kinds of Arrhythmias such as Brady (Slow Heart Rate) and Tachy (Very High Heart Rate) Arrhythmias.
A Cardiac Pace Maker is a battery operated programmable electronic device, which is designed to deliver pulse to the heart at a programmed rate, thereby maintaining a healthy heart rhythm on those occasions when the heart rate is too low or too high.
