What is a Pacemaker?

An artificial pacemaker is a device that sends small electrical signals to the heart, helping it beat regularly. It consists of a pulse generator, which is a thin metal box, along with insulated wires and a pacing lead with electrical poles.

There are different types of pacemakers, each designed to restore or maintain a normal heartbeat in specific ways. These pacemakers sense the heart's natural activity and provide electrical impulses only when the heart rate drops below a certain level. They can also adjust the heart rate based on the body's needs, like sensing activity or breathing rate through a special sensor.

Pacemakers come in different configurations:

Single-chamber pacemakers

Single-chamber pacemakers have one lead that sends signals to either the right atrium or the right ventricle of the heart. They're simpler but may not provide the most natural rhythm.

Dual-chamber pacemakers

Dual-chamber pacemakers have two leads—one in the right atrium and another in the right ventricle. This allows for a more natural heartbeat that resembles the heart's normal activities.

Triple-chamber pacemakers

Triple-chambered pacemakers may have three leads, typically in the right atrium, right ventricle, and left ventricle. These are used in specific cases to manage complex heart rhythms.

Pacemakers are a lifeline for people with irregular heartbeats, helping them lead healthier lives. The device's ability to sense the heart's activity and respond accordingly is a key feature. When the heart rate drops, the pacemaker steps in, sending electrical signals to stimulate the heart and maintain a regular rhythm. This can make a significant difference in a person's quality of life, preventing symptoms like fatigue, dizziness, and fainting.
