Dual Chamber Pacemaker Implantation (A-V sequential pacing)

An artificial pacemaker is an electronic device designed to generate electrical impulses to stimulate the heart when physiological or normal stimulation falters. These impulses, once generated, require a conductive guidewire (electrically conductive catheter) to be placed between them to attain the objective. Thus, a cardiac stimulation system has a generator of electrical impulses (the pacemaker properly speaking) and a wire.
