The normal heart rate is roughly between 60 to 100 beats per minute.
For some, there is difficulty in maintaining adequate heart rates for a variety of reasons. In these patients especially the symptomatic ones, a cardiac pacemaker may have to be implanted.

These are tested for best thresholds, and attached to selelected pacemaker/acid or device with battery internalized to send stimulus to the h.
