Pacemaker Technology Questions
Hey folks, two topics that have been on my mind as it relates to pacemaker tech. FYI, I have CHB so I'm particularly interested in that context.
Are we starting to see this discussed/developed yet? If not, why? What are the major hurdles? Seems like you could reduce device battery size and only need a recharge every year? two years? and charging would be fast enough to be done with oversight at the EP office?
I have seen some articles about leadless pacers, but are they very common? Are they pretty limited on the type of disease they treat? For instance, can they work for complete heart block?
