Can you tell me about pacemaker?

Pacemaker. A pacemaker is an electronic device which uses a lead as an antenna to sense the heart's electrical activity. It uses the same lead(s) to deliver a small electrical impulse to the heart to make it contract if the heart isn't going as fast as the device was programmed to maintain. Pacemakers both sense heart activity and pace it to produce activity. They maintain heart rate. Other things too....

Also the device senses if your heart beats on its own and is in that case inhibited. Read more...
