Heart block, which generally elicits bradycardia (slow beat) and fibrillation, which is a rapid irregular beat, are both conditions that respond well to a pacemaker. This little device is placed in the abdomen or chest. Its job is to monitor the heart rhythms and to deliver a low voltage shock to stimulate the heart back to a regular rhythm. If you want to learn more specifics, just enter pacemaker function in search. There are numerous sites that will help you understand the workings of the heart and the pacemaker. Good luck and good health.
