A Guide to Different Types of Pacemakers 

Single Chamber Pacemakers, Dual Chamber Pacemakers, Biventricular Pacemakers, and Single Chamber Pacemakers.

Pacemakers are medical devices used to treat heart rhythm disorders, such as slow heartbeats.  They help regulate the heartbeat and ensure that it beats at the correct pace. 

Single chamber pacemakers are the simplest type of pacemaker and are used to treat slow heartbeats.  They are designed to pace only one chamber of the heart.

Single chamber pacemakers have a single wire or lead, that is placed in the heart to deliver electrical impulses. 

They are relatively simple and easy to use, making them pop.

Dual chamber types of cardiac pacemakers are more complex than single chamber pacemakers and are used to treat more advanced heart rhythm disorders.  

Dual Chamber Pacemakers:

They are designed to pace both the atrium and the ventricle, providing a more sophisticated level of pacing control.  

Dual chamber pacemakers have two leads, one placed in each chamber of the heart.

Biventricular Pacemakers:

Biventricular pacemakers are the most advanced type of pacemaker and are used to treat heart failure. They are designed to pace both the right and left ventricles.
