What Is a Pacemaker and What Are the Risks? | Dr. Tanmay Kumar Das | CARE Hospitals

A pacemaker is a device used to control an irregular heart rhythm. Dr. Tanmay Kumar Das, Consultant Cardiologist, talks more about what a pacemaker is and the precautions related to it. He says that a pacemaker has flexible, insulated wires (leads) that are placed in one or more chambers of the heart. These wires deliver the electrical pulses to adjust the heart rate. Some newer pacemakers don't require leads and are called leadless pacemakers. They are implanted directly into the heart muscle. Every year, World Heart Day is celebrated on the 29th of September. This day was first announced by the World Heart Federation to make people around the world aware of cardiovascular diseases and heart health. With the global campaign for World Health Day, we should aim to bring people together in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and encourage them to follow heart-healthy practices. Your heart is an important part of your body. This Heart Day, choose to take care of your heart by following the keys to a heart healthy diet as given in the above video! #CAREHospitals #listentoyourheart #WorldHeartDay #HeartHealthforAll #Heart #cardiovascularhealth To know more visit our website: https://www.carehospitals.com/world-heart-day/2022
