Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices


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.
