Pacemaker Essentials: The basics

The team at Medmastery are providing LITFL readers with a series of FOAMed courses from across their website.

Over the next few weeks, we will be posting videos from the Pacemaker Essentials Course. First up a review of pacemaker basics: the ‘hardware‘ differences between the 3 main types of pacemaker (single-chamber, dual-chamber, and biventricular pacemakers).

I’m an International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE) certified specialist in cardiac pacemakers and ICDs, and the chief cardiac physiologist in a pacemaker clinic that carries out over 4,000 pacemaker checks per year. My passion is education, and I created THE PAD website, a popular resource for cardiology information, and wrote the book Pacemakers Made Easy.
