What is a Pacemaker? 
 A pacemaker is a little device that is surgically allocated in your chest or abdomen that helps manage abnormal heart beats. The purpose of the device is to control the heart beat of the patient by sending electric pulses, both to increase or decrease the rhythm of the heart.
How is the procedure performed?        
At Family Hospital, our patients interested in pacemaker must arrive at least a day before so we can do some pre-op  screening. With our specialist, Dr Delgado Hurtado. The surgery is done under general anesthesia through a small incision about 1 inch wide. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour to be completed. The exact location of the device will be determined during the pre-surgical evaluation. More than likely it will be placed in your chest our abdomen. Once the device is placed, the patient will stay 1 night in the hospital so we can monitor closely his/her recovery. The following day Dr Delgado will evaluate the patient and once all is clear the patient is elgable to go back home.


Day 1-  Arrival in airport or designated location. Transportation to hospital. Pre-Op testing and consultation. Spend night in hospital
Day 2- Surgery day, recovery in hospital

Day 3-  Post-Op consultation, patient eligible to go back home or hotel. Transportation  provided back to airport if necessary.
