Advanced Cardiac Care: Pacemaker, ICD, and CRT with Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV

Heart rhythm disorders and heart failure can significantly impact a person’s quality of life and overall health. Advanced medical technologies such as pacemakers, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs), and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) devices offer effective solutions for managing these conditions. As an experienced interventional cardiologist in Bangalore, I, Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV, specialize in these life-saving devices to help patients achieve better heart health and improved quality of life.

A pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device implanted under the skin, usually near the collarbone, to help regulate abnormal heart rhythms. It sends electrical impulses to the heart to ensure it beats at a normal rate and rhythm.

An ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) is a device similar to a pacemaker but with additional capabilities to treat life-threatening arrhythmias. It monitors the heart’s rhythm and delivers shocks to restore a normal rhythm if it detects dangerously fast or chaotic heartbeats.

CRT (Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy) is a treatment for heart failure that uses a specialized pacemaker (CRT device) to improve the timing of the heart’s contractions. This therapy helps the heart pump more efficiently by synchronizing the contractions of the left and right ventricles.

Advantages

Pacemakers offer several benefits for patients with bradycardia (slow heart rate) or other arrhythmias:

Regulates Heartbeat

Maintains a consistent heart rate, preventing symptoms like dizziness, fatigue, and fainting.

Improves Quality of Life

Alleviates symptoms of arrhythmias, allowing patients to engage in daily activities with more energy and confidence.

Long-Term Solution

Pacemakers can function effectively for many years, with regular monitoring and occasional adjustments.

ICDs provide crucial benefits for patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest:

Life-Saving Intervention

Can prevent sudden cardiac death by correcting dangerous arrhythmias instantly.

Continuous Monitoring

Provides ongoing surveillance of the heart's rhythm, offering peace of mind to patients and their families.

Improves Survival Rates

Significantly reduces the risk of death in patients with a history of life-threatening arrhythmias.

CRT offers significant benefits for patients with heart failure and ventricular dyssynchrony:

Improves Heart Function

Enhances the efficiency of the heart's pumping action, leading to better blood flow.

Reduces Symptoms

Alleviates symptoms of heart failure such as shortness of breath, fatigue, and swelling.

Enhances Quality of Life

Helps patients perform daily activities with less discomfort and more energy.
