Abstract/OtherAbstract:
During their 33-year history of clinical use, cardiac pacemakers have evolved from devices primarily intended to save lives into complex systems designed to improve the cardiac patient's overall quality of life. To help physicians cope with this rapidly changing field, this review outlines current indications for pacemaker therapy and examines the wide range of options available. After describing the standard nomenclature for identifying the various systems, the author discusses pacemaker selection on the basis of cardiac rhythm alone, as well as rate-modulated therapy.
