Inserting a pacemaker is a minor surgical procedure that is usually performed in a hospital or special heart treatment laboratory. The surgery takes only a few hours, but it does require an overnight stay in a hospital to ensure that the pacemaker is working properly.
A pacemaker is a small device that is placed in the chest or abdomen to help control abnormal heart rhythms. A pacemaker uses low-energy electrical pulses to cause the heart to beat at a normal rate. They are used to treat arrhythmias, which are problems with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat.
