In brief: Pacemaker

A pacemaker is a small device that sends electrical signals to your heart to stimulate it to beat at a specific rate.
There are several different types of pacemaker. A pacemaker is usually implanted under the skin of your upper chest and is fitted under local anaesthesia – this completely blocks the feeling from your chest area and you will stay awake during the operation.
