Common Reasons for a Pacemaker

Last updated 4 years ago

Pacemakers are considered by many in the field of cardiovascular care to be one the most significant innovations of the 20th century. Today's incredibly efficient pacemakers can help patients increase their quality of life as well as their lifespan by encouraging the heart to beat at a steady pace despite existing medical problems. A doctor may recommend that a patient receives a pacemaker if he or she has a malfunctioning atrioventricular node that is slowing down the heart rate, or if heart performance needs to be improved for a patient with cardiomyopathy.

As the experienced stroke care and cardiac care professionals here at the Doctors Hospital of Sarasota will share with you, in addition to the already suggested reasons, you may be considered a candidate for a pacemaker if your own sinoatrial node is underperforming. No matter what the reason is for receiving a pacemaker, however, our staff will ensure that you are well informed about the procedure and its benefits. To learn more about the many services we offer including cancer care, orthopedic care, and spine care, contact Doctors Hospital of Sarasota at (888) 685-1596.
