Vitatron – The pacemakers
Vitatron is a European based international pacemaker company with a rich history. We started in 1956, implanting our first pacemaker in 1962. Since that day, Vitatron pacemakers have helped more than 1 million people. We blend our rich history as a specialist with active physician partnerships.
Physicians' knowledge and needs are an invaluable source in our continuous efforts to deliver patient-focused therapies for the treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders: Bradycardia and Atrial Fibrillation. Our unique approach to product development yields fast, easy and innovative pacing therapies and diagnostics that adapt to the patient’s individual physiological needs.
We passionately strive for efficient perfection, realizing better results, less physical burden and time-saving pacemaker follow-ups, all resulting in lower costs for healthcare.
What is it?
What is a pacemaker? A pacemaker is an implanted medical device that stimulates the heart muscle with precisely timed discharges of electricity, which cause the heart to beat in a manner very similar to the natural heart rhythm. Pacemakers are prescribed for people whose hearts beat too slowly or irregularly.
How is it implanted?
For most adults, a lead is usually inserted through a vein and guided into the right ventricle or the right atrium of the heart. This is called an endocardial lead ("endo" means "inside", "cardio" means "heart") or a transvenous lead (because it is inserted through the vein). One or more pacing leads are used, depending on your medical condition.
How is it programmed?
All advanced Vitatron cardiac devices are supported by the Vitatron 2090 programmer.
