Pacemaker

The pacemaker is a device which is implanted to initiate electrical conductions when your own electrical conduction system fails, malfunctions or functions at to slow of a rate. This small electrical device has two parts, a generator and one or two wires, called leads. The generator which is pictured below is inserted into a pocket underneath your skin, usually located on your left chest just beneath the shoulder. The pacemaker is programmed at the specifications of your cardiologist based on your specific needs.
