Pacemaker Insertion

A

Cardiologist

and/or

Cardiac Surgeon

will normally undertake the procedure. A pacemaker insertion is the

implantation

of a small electronic device that is usually placed in the chest (just below the collarbone) to help regulate slow electrical problems with the heart (

low heart rate

). A pacemaker may be recommended to ensure that the heartbeat does not slow to a dangerously low rate. The procedure to implant a pacemaker does not require open heart surgery, and most people go home within 24 hours. Generally, the procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
