Pacemaker Implantation

Pacemaker implantation is a medical procedure that involves the surgical placement of a small electronic device called a pacemaker, typically within the chest area. The pacemaker is used to regulate the electrical activity of the heart and ensure that it beats at a regular rhythm. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia, meaning the patient is awake but the area being operated on is numb. A small incision is made in the chest, and the pacemaker leads (thin, insulated wires) are guided through a blood vessel into the heart. The leads are then attached to the heart muscle, and the other ends are connected to the pacemaker device.

What is the recovery time after pacemaker implantation

Recovery time varies, but most patients can go home the same day or within 24 hours after the procedure. It's important to follow your doctor's instructions regarding wound care, physical activity restrictions, and medication management. You may be advised to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for a short period to allow for proper healing.

Is pacemaker implantation a painful procedure?

Pacemaker implantation is performed under local anesthesia, so the area where the incision is made is numbed. Most patients do not experience significant pain during the procedure. However, some may feel pressure or discomfort during lead placement or when the leads are tested for proper function.

How long does the pacemaker implantation procedure take?

The procedure typically takes about 1 to 2 hours, but it can vary depending on individual circumstances and any additional procedures that may be performed concurrently.
