At Dr. Subhash Dukiya Heart Centre, we offer Pacemaker Implants in Sikar for those patients who have an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), particularly a slow one. Our best cardiologist and his team are among the providers of the best Pacemaker Implantation in Sikar, Rajasthan.

What is a Pacemaker?

A Pacemaker is a small device that’s placed under the skin in a patient’s chest to help control their heartbeat. 

Types of Pacemakers Implantation in Sikar:

There are three types of pacemakers that are given below;

  • Single chamber pacemaker: This type of pacemaker usually carries electrical impulses to the right ventricle of the patient’s heart.
  • Dual chamber pacemaker: This type of pacemaker carries electrical impulses to the right ventricle and the right atrium of the patient’s heart to help control the timing of contractions between the two chambers.
  • Biventricular pacemaker: Biventricular pacing, also called cardiac resynchronization therapy, is for people with heart failure with abnormal electrical systems. This type of pacemaker stimulates the lower chambers of the heart (the right and left ventricles) to make the heart beat more efficiently.

Depending on the patient’s condition, our cardiologists might suggest one of the above types of pacemakers.

What does a pacemaker do?

An implanted electronic pacemaker mimics the action of your natural electrical system. A modern pacemaker have two parts:

  • Pulse generator: This part of the pacemaker contains the battery and the electrical circuitry which control your heartbeat
  • Leads: This is the other part of the pacemaker containing one or more leads that send electrical pulses to adjust your heart rate. Leads are small wires that run from the pulse generator to your heart.

When Do You Need a Pacemaker Implants in Sikar? 

If you have an irregular heartbeat then cardiologist may suggest Pacemaker implantation. Because Pacemakers generally treat two types of irregular heartbeat (arrhythmias):

  • Tachycardia, a heartbeat that’s too fast
  • Bradycardia, a heartbeat that’s too slow

Tests Done Before Pacemaker Procedure

Before our cardiologist decides whether the patient needs a pacemaker implant, some tests need to be done to find the cause of irregular heartbeat of the patient. 

These tests may include:

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG): It is a non-invasive test that records the electrical signal from the heart to check for different heart conditions.
  • Holter monitoring: This is a portable version of an ECG. It’s especially useful in diagnosing rhythm disturbances that occur at unpredictable times. Cardiologists may recommend that patients wear a device for several hours or up to 2 days to record their heart’s rate and rhythm.
  • Echocardiogram: This noninvasive test uses harmless sound waves that create a moving picture of the patient’s heart and it allows a cardiologist to see the action of the patient ‘s heart. This way cardiologists see the heart’s chambers, walls, muscles and valves. 
  • Stress test: Some heart problems may occur only during exercise. For a stress test, an electrocardiogram is taken before and immediately after walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike. In some cases, an echocardiogram or nuclear imaging are done.

What you can expect from the Pacemaker Procedure?

There might be many questions in your mind like what happen during procedure, before ad after the procedure. Let’s see these steps one by one;

Before the procedure

Pacemaker implantation takes few hours where you’ll likely be awake during the surgery. You’ll have an intravenous line placed, through which you might receive medication to help you relax. Most procedures are done using local anesthesia to numb the area of incisions. Your chest is cleaned with a special soap.

During the procedure

One or more flexible, insulated wires are inserted into a major vein under or near your collarbone and guided to your heart using X-ray images. One end of each wire is secured to the appropriate position in your heart, while the other end is attached to the pulse generator, which is usually implanted under the skin beneath your collarbone.

After the procedure

Once the pacemaker implantation is done, you(patient) need to stay in the hospital for a day. Also, you can’t drive yourself so arrange someone to drive you home when you’re discharged.

Most pacemakers can be checked remotely. If you want to know how your pacemaker is functioning and want to know its battery life or your heart rate and rhythm then you need to ask your cardiologist. Because your pacemaker transmits to and receives information from your doctor’s office.


Cardiologists might recommend avoiding energetic exercise or heavy lifting for about a month. Also, they ask you to avoid exerting pressure on the area where the pacemaker was implanted. If you have pain in that area, before taking any medicine you need to ask your doctor about taking over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others).

Special precautions

It’s very uncommon that your pacemaker would stop working properly because of electrical interference. 

Still, need to take a some special precautions and that are given below:

  • You need to keep your phone at least 6 inches (15 centimeters) away from your pacemaker while talking on a phone. Also, don’t put that phone near where your pacemaker was implanted and hold the cellphone to the opposite ear. 
  • Whenever you enter any Security systems, make sure you are carrying your ID card (stating that you have a pacemaker)with you to avoid lingering near or leaning against a metal-detection system. 
  • Keep in mind that whenever you go for a regular checkup, tell your doctor that you have a pacemaker. Certain medical procedures, such as magnetic resonance imaging, CT scans, cancer radiation treatment, electrocautery to control bleeding during surgery, and shock wave lithotripsy to break up large kidney stones or gallstones could interfere with your pacemaker.
  • Stand at least 2 feet (61 centimeters) from welding equipment, high-voltage transformers or motor-generator systems. If you work around such equipment, ask your doctor about arranging a test in your workplace to determine whether the equipment affects your pacemaker.
  • Devices that are unlikely to interfere with your pacemaker include microwave ovens, televisions and remote controls, radios, toasters, electric blankets, electric shavers, and electric drills.

Results of our pacemaker implantation in Sikar

After pacemaker implantation in Sikar, it will improve symptoms caused by slow heartbeat, such as fatigue, lightheadedness, and fainting. Besides, a cardiologist will check your pacemaker every three to six months. 

Also, you may need to update some things to your heart doctor like;

  • If you gain weight,
  • If your legs or ankles get puffy
  • Or, you faint or get dizzy

Your pacemaker’s battery should last five to 15 years. When the battery wears out, you’ll need surgery to replace it. The procedure to change your pacemaker’s battery is often quicker and needs less recovery time than the procedure to implant your pacemaker.Because most of today’s pacemakers automatically adjust your heart rate to match your level of physical activity, they can allow you to resume a more active lifestyle.


Complications after pacemaker implants are uncommon, but may include some side effects:

  • Swelling
  • Infection where the device was implanted
  • Bleeding
  • Allergic reaction to the dye or anesthesia utilized during the surgery
  • Bruising
  • Damage to your blood vessels or nerves
  • Collapsed lung
