A Pacemaker is an electrically charged medical device. Your Cardiologist implants it under your skin to help manage irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias. Modern pacemakers have two parts. One part, called the pulse generator, contains the battery and the electronics that control your heartbeat. The other part is one or more leads to send electrical signals to your heart. Leads are small wires that run from the pulse generator to your heart.
Pacemakers generally treat two types of arrhythmias:
Tachycardia, a heartbeat that’s too fast
Bradycardia, a heartbeat that’s too slow
Some people need a special type of pacemaker called a biventricular pacemaker, or bivent. You may need a bivent if you have severe heart failure. A bivent makes the two sides of the heart beat in sync. This is known as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT).
You need a pacemaker if your heart is pumping too quickly or too slowly. In either case, your body doesn’t get enough blood. This can cause:
Fainting or lightheadedness
Shortness of breath
Damage to vital organs
Implanting a pacemaker typically takes one to two hours. You’ll receive a sedative to relax you and a local anesthetic to numb the incision site. You’ll be awake during the procedure. Using the wire, your cardiologist will attach an electrode to your heart’s right ventricle. The ventricle is the lower chamber of the heart. The other end of the wire attaches to a pulse generator. This contains the battery and electrical circuits.
If you’re getting a biventricular pacemaker, your surgeon will attach a second lead to your heart’s right atrium, and a third lead to the left ventricle. The atrium is the upper chamber of the heart.
Dr Anurag Mehrotra is one of the most renowned heart specialist in India with more than 22 years of experience in doing Coronary Procedures like Pacemaker Installation, Angiography, Angioplasty and Electrophysiology Studies.

EP Study costs Rs. 20,000 at Siddh Hospital, Moradabad and if a pacemaker is to be installed after the EP Studies then the cost would be in the range of Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 1,25,000 depending whether a temporary or a permanent pacemaker is to be installed. The biventricular device is an expensive product and costs Rs. 8-10 Lacs.
