Cardiac pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators, also called cardiac implantable electronic devices are used to correct abnormal heart rhythms.

 

How Are They Implanted? 

Implantation of pacemaker or AICD is a straightforward process and is performed under local anaesthesia. The pacemaker is normally implanted in the chest with a minor surgery that takes approximately 30 – 60 minutes and normally performed as a day-care procedure.
