Pacemakers and Defibrillators

If a patient suffers from a slow or fast heartbeat, there are implantable devices that will make the heartbeat regular and treat an arrhythmia. Slow heartbeats are treated with pacemakers. Fast heartbeats, which may lead to cardiac arrest, which is when the heart stops beating and needs to be restarted, are treated with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.
