Dr. Shukla explains what a pacemaker is, as well as its function.
Pacemakers are relatively utilized devices whose utilization has changed over the number of years that it’s been around, but the primary focus of putting in pacemakers are for slow rhythm disorders. So we’ve spoken about tachycardias which are fast heart rhythm disorders, bradycardias are slow heart rhythm disorders. Pacemakers have one job and one job only; that’s to prevent the heart rhythm from going too slow.
