Is a Pacemaker Right for You?

Bradycardia (Slow Heart Rate)

Some individuals with bradycardia may be eligible for an implantable pacemaker that will continuously monitor their heart. If the pacemaker detects an irregular or slow heart rate it will send out small undetectable electrical signals to correct it.

You may want to speak with your doctor about whether this is an option for you, and whether you should be referred to a cardiologist or an electrophysiologist (EP) for a consultation.
