Pacemaker Implantation Details
Your heart has a natural ability to generate electrical impulses which help in generating heart beat and are responsible for the pumping of blood from the heart. The group of muscle fibers which generate electrical impulses are called SA node. When the natural potency of the heart to generate electrical impulses is disturbed or reduced, there is a need to get a pacemaker implant done. A pacemaker is a small lithium ion battery which has certain wires attached to it. Depending on the choice of the surgeon it can be placed either in the abdominal cavity or in the chest cavity.
