Pacemakers are small implantable devices used to help maintain proper heart rhythm in patients with irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias); they can monitor the patient's heart rate and emit electrical pulses when necessary to correct any irregularities. The pacemaker can be implanted into either the chest or in the abdominal region. An incision is made into the chest (or the abdomen), the pacemaker and its leads are inserted in the pocket created, and the lead tips are connected to the heart. The double chamber pacemaker, a particular type of pacemaker, has one lead in the upper chamber of the heart, and one in the lower chamber of the heart.
