What is Heart pacemaker implant?
Pacemaker implantation surgery is a procedure used to implant a medical device called a pacemaker into the chest of a specific type of cardiac patient. A pacemaker is a small electrical device that sends electrical pulses to your heart to keep it beating regularly and not too slowly. It works by directly regulating the beating of the heart, and thus maintaining normal heart rhythm and heart rate. This is achieved with the help of the two components that work in coordination with each other – the pulse generator and electrical leads.
The new technology of Artificial Cardiac Pacemaker provided a new, smaller pacemaker about the size of a pill that has been developed and is currently being tested in a global clinical trial. The new device uses wireless technology and can be implanted directly into the heart, where it delivers electrical impulses from an electrode and has the benefits of lowering the risk of infection and shortening the recovery time associated with implanting traditional pacemakers.
What is a pacemaker?
A pacemaker is a small, battery-powered device made up of two parts, a pulse generator, and the leads. This 3D medical animation provides an anatomical overview of the heart and demonstrates the steps involved in placing a pacemaker. The pulse generator of the pacemaker gives off impulses that cause the atria and/or ventricles to contract. It is positioned under the skin, below the collarbone on either side of the chest. The leads carry signals between the pulse generator and the heart in both directions. The surgeon will make a small incision beneath your collarbone. The pacemaker’s leads will be inserted into the subclavian vein and then threaded toward the right side of your heart. Your surgeon will view x-ray images on a video screen to position the leads correctly.
Types of pacemakers
In this short lesson, you will learn to discriminate against the different types of pacemakers: single chamber pacemakers, dual-chamber pacemakers, and biventricular pacemakers.
Who is a candidate for heart battery implantation?
Artificial Cardiac Pacemaker implantation surgery is best suited for people who suffer from either one of the following two conditions:
• Tachycardia: Characterized by fast heart rate and rhythm.
• Bradycardia: Characterized by slow heart rate and rhythm.
Both these conditions may prove harmful to the life of the patient. In either of these conditions, the different organs of the patient’s body do not receive an adequate amount of oxygenated blood. This may lead to serious complications if the conditions persist for a long duration of time.
The heart battery implant surgery can help to treat some symptoms such as Light-headedness, shortness of breath, fainting, and excessive fatigue that indicate the patient may be suffering from arrhythmia. Having a pacemaker can significantly improve your quality of life if you have problems with a slow heart rate. The device can be lifesaving for some people.
Before Heart Battery implantation surgery
Before Artificial Cardiac Pacemaker implantation surgery, a team of cardiology specialists first check whether you are fit enough to undergo the procedure. They will conduct a few blood tests and an X-ray to determine your overall health status, in addition to a verbal inquiry about your general health and other heart-related disorders
Immediately after the heart pacemaker surgery, the patient is transferred to the recovery room where he or she can rest for a few hours or a day. Once their condition is stable, he or she is transferred to a hospital room.
• You’ll usually stay in the hospital for one day after having a pacemaker implanted. Meanwhile, the cardiac surgeon keeps a tab on the recovery of the patient and his or her vital signs. If needed, tests are conducted to monitor the health of the patient and confirm the correct placement of the leads and the pacemaker device.
• You should be able to return to normal physical activities soon after surgery. As a precaution, it’s usually recommended that strenuous activities are avoided for around 4 to 6 weeks after having a pacemaker fitted. After this, you should be able to do most activities and sports.
• You’ll be able to feel the pacemaker, but you’ll soon get used to it. It may seem a bit heavy at first and may feel uncomfortable when you lie in certain positions.
• You’ll need to attend regular check-ups to make sure your pacemaker is working properly. Most pacemakers store information about your natural heart rhythms. When you have follow-up appointments, your doctor can retrieve this information and use it to check how well your heart and the pacemaker are working.
• If you feel dizzy or feel your heart beating faster while using an electrical appliance, simply move away from it to allow your heartbeat to return to normal.
• You may experience pain in your chest for some days but it is normal and will disappear soon.
