If your heartbeat is too fast or too slow or there is a block in the heart’s electrical pathways then there is a need of a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a small unit that helps your heartbeat to regulate. It does this with a small electric stimulation that helps control your heartbeat. It is an implantable, battery-powered microcomputer that sends electrical pulses to your heart whenever it detects a slow heartbeat or no heartbeat at all.

There are different types of pacemakers, According to your condition doctor will suggest you which one is best for you:
Single-chamber pacemakers stimulate single chamber of the heart, either an upper chamber (atrium) or, more commonly, a lower one (ventricle).
Dual-chamber pacemakers send electrical impulses to both the atrium and the ventricle and pace both chambers. A dual-chamber pacemaker synchronizes the rhythm of the atrium and ventricles in a pattern that closely resembles the natural heartbeat. Dual-chamber pacemakers are often used to treat a slow heart rate.
