It is a small unit that helps your heart beat more regularly. It does this with a small electric stimulation that helps control your heartbeat. Your doctor implants the machine under the skin on your chest, just under your collarbone. It is hooked up to your heart with tiny wires.
You may need one to keep your heart beating properly. This helps your body to get the blood, oxygen and food that it needs. Some people just need a pacemaker for a short time (like after a heart attack) and may use a kind that’s outside the skin. The battery unit for this type can be worn on a belt.

Your heart beats too slow or too fast.
There’s a block in your heart’s electrical pathways.
A pacemaker uses batteries to send electric signals to your heart to help it pump the right way.
It is connected to your heart by one or more wires. Tiny electric charges that you can’t feel move through the wire to your heart.
It works only when needed. It starts working when your heartbeat is too slow, too fast or irregular.
Check your pulse and keep a record of it the way your doctor tells you.
Your doctor will check your pacemaker every three to six months. The battery in your pacemaker should last eight years or longer. When the battery runs down, you will need surgery to replace it (free lifetime warranty is given by the manufacturer).
Take your medicine the way your doctors tell you.
Tell your doctor if you have trouble in breathing, if you gain weight or get puffy legs or ankles, or if you faint, black out or get dizzy.
Follow all instructions given by your doctor and keep your appointments.
Carry an I.D. card with you so others know you have a pacemaker.
Tell your other doctors and your dentist that you have a pacemaker. Certain types of medical equipment may affect how a pacemaker works.

You can use a cell phone, if you take these steps:
Hold the phone to the ear on the side of your body opposite from your pacemaker.
When your phone is on, try to keep it at least six inches away from your pacemaker. For example, don’t carry your phone in your chest pocket over your pacemaker.
