A dual chamber pacemaker
has two leads: one is implanted on the right atrium and other on the right ventricle, hence mimicking normal physiological cardiac conduction.6 The advent of steroid eluting leads have led to improved stimulation thresholds and performance.3,8,9 The pacing leads can be implanted via transvenous (endocardial) or surgical (epicardial) route.
This analysis includes a discussion of products, current/forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in the implantable pacemaker

Caption: A pacemaker
ensures the heart never beats slower than a predetermined rate.
Fluoroscopy, a type of "moving X-ray," uses ionizing radiation to help a physician visualize where to place the leads of a pacemaker
. Fluoroscopy is currently the traditional imaging modality for pacemaker
In the remaining 141 patients, 77 were implanted with a pacemaker
The catheter to implant the leadless pacemaker
device was inserted by a medical team from the National Heart Center headed by Dr Najeeb al Rawahi, senior electrocardiology consultant at the centre with the assistance of Dr Ismail al Abri, electrocardiology consultant.
This may lead to sudden collapse of the patient and could cause significant detrimental effects and sometimes even death, if a pacemaker
isn't implanted immediately," said Dr Allam Alkowatli, consultant interventional cardiologist and chief of Cardiology at Emirates Hospital Jumeirah.
[U.S.A.], June26 (ANI): A research study found that patients with leadless pacemakers
are likely to have fewer short-term and mid-term complications than those with transvenous pacemakers
He also said that with sophistication and more algorithms in the pacemakers
, the device functions when it detects any abnormalities in the heart, which also then helps in preserving the battery life.

For instance, researchers at Rice University and the Texas Heart Institute (THI) recently showcased a wireless, battery-less pacemaker
that can be implanted directly into a patient's heart.
