Heart arrhythmia occurs when the heart beats too slowly, too quickly, or abnormally. For patients who have bradycardia, or a slowed heart rate, a heart doctor may recommend the implantation of pacemakers. This type of heart disease treatment reacts to a slowed heart rate by transmitting an electrical impulse to the heart to accelerate its beating.
You can learn more about how pacemakers work by watching this animation. You’ll see where pacemakers are typically implanted and how they are connected to the heart.
