Signs and symptoms for pacemakers

  • A pacemaker is a small device about the size of a matchbox that weighs 20-50g
  • It consists of a pulse generator – which has a battery and a tiny computer circuit – and one or more wires, known as pacing leads, which attach to your heart
  • The pulse generator emits electrical impulses through the wires to your heart
  • Almost all modern pacemakers work on demand. This means they can be programmed to adjust the discharge rate in response to your body’s needs
PACEMAKERS contraindications In beauty therapy


If you need to have a pacemaker fitted, a small electrical device called a pacemaker will be surgically implanted in your chest.

The pacemaker sends electrical pulses to your heart to keep it beating regularly and not too slowly.

Having a pacemaker can significantly improve your quality of life if you have problems with a slow heart rate. The device can be lifesaving for some people.

In the UK, pacemaker implantation is one of the most common types of heart surgery carried out, with many thousands of pacemakers fitted each year.
