Dual-chamber Pacemakers Market Segmentation Detailed Study with Forecast to 2025

Dual-chamber pacemaker is a small, battery-operated medical device. It is placed inside the chest of a patient suffering from arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm). A dual-chamber pacemaker has two leads, one of which is placed in the right ventricle and the other is placed in the right atrium. After slow natural heart rate is detected, the sequential physiological contraction of ventricles and atria is imitated by synchronous action of the two leads. The pacemaker assists the heart to beat at a normal rate by using electric pulses. Arrhythmia increases chances of cardiac stroke, cardiac arrest, and heart attack. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S., every 40 seconds, an individual suffers a heart attack and every year, 790,000 individuals suffer a heart attack. Among these, 580,000 Americans suffer a heart attack for the first time and 210,000 Americans suffer a heart attack, which is not their first experience. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in women as well as men. In 2015, more than 50% of men died due to a heart attack.
