Pacemakers generally treat two types of arrhythmias:
Depending on their medical condition, patients are recommended one of the following types of pacemakers:
DESUN Hospital has facility for "Minimally Invasive Heart Bypass" or Heart Bypass done through Small Cut (Small Incision).
Pacemakers create an external support to ensure your heart never skips a beat. An implanted electronic pacemaker mimics the action of the natural electrical system and has two parts:
The general mechanism of a pacemaker involves the following steps :
The two basic functions of the pacemaker system are pacing and sensing:
Single Chamber Pacemaker refers to that which has only 1 lead into the heart. Predominantly this refers to a single lead in the Ventricles (bottom of the heart) but sometimes a single lead is put into the top of the heart (Atria) only.
When the heart is damaged by a heart attack (cardiac arrest) or blockage, it loses its role as a natural pacemaker. An artificial Single Chamber pacemaker helps re-establish the conduction between the ventricles or atria.
Dual Chamber pacemaker has two leads placed in the atrium and ventricle that sends electrical signals to your heart to help it beat at a proper pace. These are recommended to treat symptomatic bradycardia in people with sick sinus syndrome, antrioventricular block, or both.
Desun Hospital, implants High Quality American Dual (Double) Chamber Pacemaker at an affordable cost.
A person would need a Dual Chamber Pacemaker if they experience the following medical conditions:
DDD pacing mode refers to a pacemaker with a lead in both the top section of the heart (Atria) and the bottom of the heart (Ventricles). The DDD mode will control Bradycardia and provide AV synchrony, but will not provide rate adaptation in patients with chronotropic incompetence.
DDDR pacing mode refers to a pacemaker with a lead in the top of the heart (Atria) and the bottom of the heart (Ventricles). When a pacemaker is set to DDDR, it looks after the top and bottom sections of the heart. Additionally, it also has a sensor which records cardiac output and adjusts accordingly. The DDDR mode will therefore control Bradycardia, maintain AV synchrony, and provide far rate adaptation in the presence of Chronotropic incompetence.
There are several factors like past medical history, diagnosis and other related factors that must be considered prior to implanting a pacemaker. Every patient is unique, therefore careful analysis is an essential pre-requisite to determine the correct timing & approach, as well as choose the appropriate type of pacemaker.
Before the doctor decides if the patient needs a pacemaker, several investigative procedures will have to be executed to isolate the cause of arrhythmia. These could include:
Readings from personal health monitoring devices, like smart watches, etc. can also help. (Ask your doctor if this is an option for you.)
A pacemaker implant improves symptoms caused by slow heartbeat, such as fatigue, lightheadedness and fainting.
The doctor checks the pacemaker every six months. Any instances of weight gain or complaints of puffy legs or ankles, dizziness or fainting must be disclosed to the doctor promptly to help monitor the effectiveness of the device.
A pacemaker's battery ideally lasts for a period of 5 to 15 years. When the battery wears out, the same must be surgically removed to replace it. This procedure is often quicker and requires less recovery time than the procedure to implant the pacemaker. Since most of today's pacemakers automatically adjust the heart rate to match the level of physical activity, they allow the patient to resume a more active lifestyle.
