Do you know about a pacemaker?Our heart beats without any break throughout our life, pumping blood to all parts of body carrying oxygen and nutrients. There is a natural pacemaker in our heart which generate a current that causes contraction of the heart resulting in pumping function.
However, an artificial pacemaker is required to be implanted in case our heart beats too slow or too fast or it doesn't beat regularly or there is a block in our heart's electrical pathways.
A pacemaker uses batteries to send electric signals to our heart to help it pump the right way. The pacemaker is connected to the heart by one or more wires. Tiny electric charges that we cannot feel move through the wire to your heart. It works only when needed and functions when our heartbeat is too slow, too fast or irregular.
Let us share our general knowledge about a pacemaker.
