Pacer Gen Changeout

What You Need to Know:

The pacemaker generator sends electrical impulses to your heart. This makes your heart beat correctly. The generator also contains a battery. Your healthcare provider will replace your generator before the battery runs out. The generator may be replaced earlier if it stops working correctly. Your healthcare provider will talk to you about how to prepare for the procedure. You may be told to not to eat or drink anything after midnight on the day of your procedure. You will be advised as to what medicines to take or not take on the day of your procedure. Ask someone to drive you home from your procedure.
