Abstract: A pacemaker is a small battery-operated medical device that delivers electrical impulses to the heart in order to guarantee regular contractions. Depending on the number of active leads the pacemakers are single chamber, dual chamber and bi-ventricular. According to their programming the devices could be with fixed-rate, ‘on demand’ and rateresponsitive. The operating mode of the pacemaker depends on the paced chamber, the sensed chamber, the response to a sensed electrical signal and the rate modulation. Two types of pacing are recognized – unipolar and bipolar, represented with different pacing artifacts in the ECG signal. This paper presents a short review on pacemakers – reasons for implementation, device types, different operation modes and pacing pulses. It reveals some common problems with the detection of pacemaker’s artifacts.
