Permanent Pacemaker Implant Single Chamber

A pacemaker is an electronic device implanted in the chest or abdomen to control the heartbeat at a normal pace using electrical pulses. Permanent pacemakers are made in such a way that it responds to the condition of the heart. The lowest heart rate is set in the pacemaker and if your heart rate drops below the set rate, it fires electrical pulses to stimulate faster heartbeats so that it could beat at a normal rate.

Pacemakers are of two types. Temporary pacemakers are used to treat short-term heart problems that slow down the heartbeat-like heart surgery, heart attack, or overdose of medicine. Permanent pacemakers are used to control problems of long term heart rhythm.

A pacemaker contains:

  • A computerized pulse generator to enable electrical signals to regulate the heartbeat
  • One to three leads, wires that deliver signals between the pulse generator and your heart
  • Electrodes to help deliver signals
  • A battery

The pacemaker is small and about the size of a matchbox weighing 20 – 50 grams. It recognizes your body movement or your breathing rate.


Recommended: 81-Year-Old Implanted with the World's Smallest Pacemaker at Continental Hospitals


Indications for a Permanent pacemaker 

Patients have advised to implant a pacemaker if they suffer some condition such as:

  • Bradycardia (heartbeat slower than normal)
  • Tachycardia (heartbeat faster than normal)
  • Heart block due to aging, heart damage
  • Sick sinus syndrome
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Need to take heart medicines such as beta-blockers
  • Fainting or other symptoms of slow heartbeat
  • Heart muscle problems
  • Long QT syndromes
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Heart transplants


Types of Permanent pacemakers

 The type of pacemaker you need depends on your condition and specific heart problem you have. There are three types, namely,

  • Single chamber – it has one lead that connects the pulse generator to one chamber of the heart. This is to stimulate pacing in one chamber.
  • Dual chamber – it has two leads connecting to both chambers on the right side of your heart, the right atrium, and right ventricle. This helps regulate the rate of contractions in both sides of the chamber.
  • Biventricular chamber – it has three leads connecting to the right atrium and two ventricles. It is used to treat people with arrythmias caused by advanced heart failure.


Diagnosis and tests

  • Physical examination
  • Blood tests
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Echocardiography
  • Holter and Event monitors
  • Electrophysiology study
  • Stress test

  • You will be instructed on how to care for the pacemaker
