Suara.com – Whether it’s congenital or because of an accident, some people experience abnormal heart rhythms. One of them is a heart condition that beats slower than usual or is called bradycardia.

Bradycardia occurs because of a disturbance in the electrical signal in the heart caused by a defect in the natural pacemaker (SA) or a disturbance in the electrical conduction system in the heart.

The result is a permanent pacemaker (Permanent Pacemaker) with low power electricity will overcome this electrical signal abnormality.

Doctors usually recommend using a pacemaker to stabilize the heart rhythm, if the patient feels the patient’s heart rate is too weak and could be life threatening.

“Using a pacemaker, we doctors can monitor and this tool helps to record electrical activity and heart rhythm. The new pacemaker can also adjust the heart rate according to activity. With the programmer a cardiologist can set the optimal pacing mode for each. patients, “explained Dr. dr. Ignatius Yansen NG., Sp.JP (K), FIHA, Consultant Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology Specialist, based on written information received by Suara.com, Tuesday (19/1/2021).

Permanent pacemaker, is an artificial medical device that uses electrical impulses that are transmitted through electrodes so that the heart muscle contracts and regulates the heart rate.

This device is placed on the chest or stomach to control abnormal heart rates.
