The rhythmicity of the heart beat is based on the electric impulses. These impulses are initiated by the contraction of the cardiac muscles also known as myocardium. These impulses are initiated by the specialised cells situated at specific location within the myocardium; these cells are known as pacemaker cells as they main the pace (speed) of the heartbeat.
Cardiac rhythm disorders can cause Increased pulse than the average beats puts lot of stress on the cardiac functions leading to fatigue and finally heart arrest.
Indications for Pacemaker Implant:
Pacemakers relieve patients with condition s called cardiac arrhythmia normalising the heart rhythm
During an arrhythmia, the heart beats with an irregular rhythm or at a faster pace or at slower pace.
Function of Pacemaker:
A pacemaker is a small device that’s placed in the chest or abdomen controls abnormal heart rhythms and makes the heart beat at regular intervals. This device uses low-energy electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate.
Pacemakers help restore the normal rate and rhythm of the heart and reduce the fatigability of the heart muscle. Pacemakers provide a new lease of life to the patients suffering from heart rhythm disorders and help them lead a normal active daily life.
