There are different types of pacemakers. They include the following:
Permanent heart pacemaker:
This type of device is placed in a small pocket beneath your skin and stays there for the rest of your life.
Demand heart pacemaker:
Equipped with an inbuilt sensing device, this type of pacemaker helps sense slow heartbeat and automatically turns the signals on. When the heartbeat reaches a specific level, the signal turns off automatically
Temporary heart pacemaker:
This type of pacemaker helps with the initial stabilization of a heart patient at the time of the cardiac arrest.
Adaptive heart pacemaker:
This type of pacemaker is responsible for increasing the pace of the heart rate to help meet the body’s changing needs.
Single chamber heart pacemaker:
This pacemaker carries signals to and from one particular chamber of the heart, which is either the right ventricle or the right atrium.
Dual-chamber heart pacemaker:
The pacemaker has two leads that can monitor and eventually deliver impulses to or from the heart chambers.
