When your heart’s rhythm is irregular, the quality of your life drops. The pacemaker doctors at our medical practice have the tools it takes to normalize your heartbeats so that performing everyday tasks are no longer a threat to you.
What Is a Pacemaker?
A pacemaker is a tiny electronic device that is surgically implanted inside your upper chest. This cutting-edge piece of equipment then monitors your heart’s function for any irregularities. If your heartbeat is irregular, your pacemaker will produce an electric signal to your heart to help stabilize it. This helps to normalize your heart’s natural sinus rhythm, which is the key to handling tachyarrhythmia, bradycardia, and arrhythmia. With your heartbeat under control, you can begin to alleviate a number of different symptoms, including fainting spells, dizziness, general fatigue, chest pain, and shortness of breath.
While a pacemaker can make your life easier, it also requires you to take pacemaker precautions to ensure you stay healthy and safe with this equipment inside of you. Some of the precautions to take include avoiding or using caution with airport security detectors, large motors, large magnetic fields, and high-voltage radar machinery. Our friendly pacemaker doctors make sure to go over all of the different safety measures you need to ensure that you get the most out of your pacemaker.
Heart Transplants & Cardiology Services
If you suffer from serious heart issues, our doctors might recommend a heart transplant treatment. Patients should know that a heart transplant is not the same as a cure. This is a form of treatment that is able to help you make your life more normal when you are dealing with heart failure. If you receive a heart transplant you are going to need to carefully follow a lifelong routine of healthy living habits and medication to ensure that your transplanted heart functions properly.
People living with heart failure or extreme heart disease will find that a heart transplant provides them with a number of great benefits. Your new heart will help you increase the amount of energy, strength, and stamina you have so you can live a more normal lifestyle. There are many day-to-day struggles that people with heart issues face and this can help you remove a good number of them. Most importantly, a heart transplant is able to improve the prognosis for extending your lifespan when you are diagnosed with heart disease or failure.
