This is the exact pacemaker my Nanny had placed under her left collar bone Saturday!!! Isn't it tiny? It connects to two lead wires; one goes into upper chamber of the heart, and one in the lower... when one of them sensors a mis-fire in her heart, it kicks in and paces her heart back to a normal rhythm...isn't that cool??? It's all done very quickly, she was asleep; it's called a procedure, not an actual surgery... hard to believe something so tiny is helping to keep her alive??? Now her heart rate is staying around 80-90, instead of 30-40, where it has been for the last 4-6 months... she feels alot better now...
