Pacemakers and Implantable Defibrillators are devices that are generally inserted into a pocket within the top of the chest. Pacemakers are used to control your heartbeat for people who have a slow heartbeat or abnormal rhythms (arrhythmias). Defibrillators are life-saving device that fix fast abnormal heart rhythms via the use of electrical impulses and shocks.
These devices need to be checked regularly. Mid North Coast Cardiac Services has highly trained full time Pacemaker Technicians who assist our Cardiologists to perform pacemaker clinics.
Mid North Coast Cardiac Services offers a Remote Home monitoring service for suitable Pacemaker and Defibrillator patients. Remote monitoring allows direct transmission from your device to your cardiologist from your own home and enables early detection of abnormal heart rhythms and battery loss.
