Pacemakers help millions of heart patients around the world stay healthy and safe. Over the years, they have evolved and advanced in various ways.
The most common reason people get a pacemaker is their heart beats too slowly (a condition called bradycardia), or it pauses, causing fainting spells or other symptoms. Permanent cardiac pacing can be implemented by an electrophysiologist.
PHKL's first leadless pacemaker was implanted in 2018 in an elderly patient with poor venous access for conventional pacing. To know more about your heart rate, visit our Consultant Interventional Cardiologist/Electrophysiologist, Dr Ernest Ng.
