Pacemakers

When the heartbeat is too slow because the heart's natural pacemaker or its wiring system is not functioning properly, implantation of a permanent pacemaker is necessary. The pacemaker – a small device implanted under the skin in the chest – is used to ensure that the heart beats at a normal and appropriate rate.
