The presentation I liked the most is “Artificial Pacemaker” given by Ying Ying Miao on 12/23/2010. Artificial Pacemaker is a small electronic device placed under the skin of chest or abdomen which helps the heart to beat in a regular rhythm. It uses electric pulses to prompt the heart to beat at normal rate. The primary purpose of artificial pacemaker is to maintain an adequate heart rate, either because natural pacemaker is not fast enough or there is a block in the heart’s electrical conduction system which prevents the propagation of electrical impulses from the natural pacemaker to the lower chambers of the heart (i.e. ventricles). Artificial pacemaker comprises of two parts: 1.A pulse generator which has a battery, a timer and a sensing device encased in it. It produces electrical impulses that stimulate the heart to beat. It is powered by a small battery and it can be implanted under skin through small incision. 2. Wires (Leads) are implanted to connect pulse generator to the heart. The impulses flow through the leads to the heart and are
