Pacemaker

Pacemaker; Millions of people in the world carries pacemaker. These advanced technology product small devices are used for many cases; from preventing the slowing of the heart rate to treatment of heart failure, to the task of heart pumping to prevention of sudden deaths. The device which eliminates the complaints after inserted; increases the life quality of the patient and helps to returning back to normal life. Basically there are 3 types of pacemakers: Single and double wired pacemakers that prevents the decreasing of heart rate, 3 wired pacemakers used for treatment of heart failure and defibrillators that saves the lives by giving electroshock in case of not performing pumping function due to very high rhythm.

Pacemakers are inserted to the people who have heart rhythm disorders and cannot continue their lives normally. These patients are able to return back to their normal lives with pacemakers.

They can return back to work, can perform house duties, drive, travel, and swim, and continue to their hobbies and sexual lives. People with pacemakers should carry their pacemaker ID along with them at all the times. They should learn the closest clinics when they travel. The performance of the pacemaker must be monitored after inserted. Pacemaker which is a small computer as well can be read from outside with a method called telemetric method by the aid of an outside computer. By this, the information is reached such as; how was the patient’s heart rate, how long has the pacemaker worked, were there any own rhythm time to time or attached to the pacemaker at all the time, were there any other rhythm disorders occurred.

Also it is possible to program the pacemaker from outside such as the voltage of the pacemaker or the values needed to keep the heart rate. The patient, during the 7 years of the average lifetime of the pacemaker should have to come to controls in every 6 months. Since the pacemaker run out can be detected previously, these controls are very important.
