Certain cardiac diagnoses and chronic irregular heart rhythms may be treated with a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a small device that is inserted under the skin to help keep your heart beat regular. When irregular heartbeats are detected, the pacemaker sends electrical pulses to the heart to help regulate its rhythm. Implementing a pacemaker is a surgical procedure performed in a hospital by a cardiologist. After implementation, patients visit certified Pacemaker Clinics, like Heartsafe for monitoring and follow-up.
Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators (ICDs) have saved many lives and provided peace of mind for patients at risk of cardiac sudden death. HeartSafe provides a local pacemaker clinic for the monitoring of these devices.
Today's sophisticated cardiac pacemakers use technology that closely mimics the operation of a normal heart. At Heartsafe, we can easily adjust your pacemaker to maintain efficient settings that maximize safety and battery life, while functioning to support individual lifestyles.

Pacemaker follow-up is conducted a regular intervals to evaluate how a patient's pacemaker is performing. Pacemaker follow-up is scheduled at the patient's convenience. Using a transmitter, the pacemaker's battery, rate and function can be assessed over the phone. A critical care registered nurse will notify your physician if any unusual changes occur with your pacemaker.
