IMPLANTABLE PACEMAKER

Implantable Pacemaker

An implantable pacemaker system relieves symptoms of heart rhythm disturbances. They do this by restoring normal heart rates.

A normal heart rate provides your body with the proper amount of blood circulation. The pacemaker system is intended for patients who need rate-adaptive pacing or chronic pacing or for patients who may benefit from synchronizing the pumping of the heart chambers.
