Cardiology

Our hearts are amazing organs. They beat literally thousands of times a day, every day, for our entire lives. That’s why it’s important that we take good care of our hearts and give them the best possible chance of staying healthy.

    A pacemaker is a small device that sends electrical pulses to you heart to keep it beating correctly and not too slowly. People with slow heart rates can dramatically improve their lives by having a pacemaker fitted.

    Pacemaker implantations are among the most common heart procedures carried out in the world each year.

    Many people assume that a patient requires open heart surgery for a pacemaker to be fitted. They don’t. In fact, the procedure is carried out using a local anaesthetic and most people are able to go home within 24 hours of the procedure being completed.

    Prior to the surgery, the patient may be given medication to make them sleepy and comfortable. A small incision, approximately 5 cm long, is made in the patient’s upper chest so that the pacemaker can be inserted. It is then attached to wire that is guided through a blood vessel to the heart.

    The pacemaker is then programmed by a doctor and checked to ensure correct operation before the incision is closed.

    The whole procedure usually takes just one hour.
