A generator of the pulse or metallic plate is formed by (that is
implanted in the chest underneath collarbone), contains a battery and
electrical circuits in charge to regulate the rate of the impulses which
they will be sent to the heart through flexible wires, which are
introduced through a great vein until the organ cardiac.
The human body is provided with pacemaker natural (called structure
node auricular sine), that are in charge to maintain to the heart
barking at an suitable level, that is to say, of faster way during
physical and slower effort in states of rest or dream.
It is located in the right superior cavity of the heart (auricle) and
is provided with producing cells of electrical impulses, which move to
the inferior cavities (ventricles) and produce contractions in the
muscle cardiac, allowing that the blood is pumped the entire organism to
provide oxygen to him.
When those impulses become irregular or very slow, the person undergoes
sudden faints and sicknesses, because the electrical currents produced
by the pacemaker natural are not lead to the ventricles, consequently,
the blood is not pumped in effective form, and the organism does not
obtain oxygen necessary to work of correct way.
If east type of situation appears it is necessary implants of pacemaker
that are made by means of simple surgical procedure that it does not
require more than one night of hospital stay. In most of the cases local
anesthesia with intravenous medication via (through the veins) relaxing
to the person is used.
Before the patient leaves the hospital program to the pacemaker
according to the particular necessities of heart rate, and later medical

Although the effectiveness of the pacemaker has been demonstrated,
exists the complication risk, like the inflammation of the skin where
the apparatus is located as result of the pressure caused by article use
very fit and increase of sensitivity in the zone, for that reason, is
very important to follow exactly the indications of the specialist and
to go to revision.
Also it is recommended that the carrier of pacemaker fulfills the
• To bring with him a document, which must include the type, marks,
model, manufacturer, date in which they were implanted it, name of the
specialist whom the intervention made, as well as the telephone and
direction of the hospital where it takes medical pursuit.
• To go to its medical visits of control.
It is probable that a series of restlessness appears on the pacemaker,
because is created erroneously that the patient cannot use cellular
telephones and that apparatuses like furnace of microwaves, remote
control, electrical bedspreads or rasuradoras they can interfere with
Luckily, it has been verified that these devices are inoffensive, is
due solely to try to bring the remote cellular telephone of the chest.
However, which if it can alter it or damage it is the prolonged
exhibition to systems of electronic monitoring.
