Pace Maker Checks & Adjustment
DMI performs pace maker checks to ensure they are properly working. The technician will apply 3 or 4 small stickers called “electrodes” to the chest. The special magnet will be placed over the pacemaker on the chest. The computer then “talks” to the pacemaker and tells us how it has been working. The technician can adjust the settings on the pacemaker using this magnet and computer. You will not feel anything during the check. The technician may ask you various questions during this to see how you are feeling. The check-up can take up to 30-40 minutes, depending on how complicated your particular pacemaker is.
