The use of cardiac pacemakers

G. J. Saviano, J. B. Kostis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The artificial cardiac pacemaker of the 1980s is a frequently used, sometimes life-saving, device. The specialized care of patients with pacemakers requires physician expertise and use of special equipment. All physicians, however, should be familiar with principles of the function, follow-up, and complications of pacemakers because the number of patients with these units is increasing and because much information on pacemaker function may be obtained from the ECG.
