Living with a Pacemaker
By keeping your heart from beating too slowly, pacemakers can treat symptoms like fatigue, lightheadedness and fainting – and put you on the path to feeling more like yourself. Your pacemaker can allow you to get back to a more active lifestyle by automatically adjusting your heart rate to match your level of activity.
