  • All About Life with a Pacemaker Bracelet

    pacemaker braceletA normal, healthy heart regulates your heartbeat. What happens when your heart does not beat normally? A pacemaker may solve the problem. You can live normally with a pacemaker. However, caretakers and medical professionals need to know about it. A pacemaker bracelet is the ideal accessory to alert others.

    What Is a Pacemaker?

    A pacemaker is a small device. It is implanted under the skin of the chest. This compact device sends electrical impulses to the heart muscle. When it sends an impulse, the heart beats. It creates a normal rate and rhythm.

    This instrument has two basic parts: the pulse generator and the leads.

    1. The pulse generator contains a small computer. It also contains the battery.
    2. A surgeon threads the leads through your veins and into your heart muscle. These wires sense the heart’s electrical activity. In response, they cause the generator to send low-energy electrical impulses.
