The Pacemaker Global Supply Chain


Pacemakers are part of a medical device segment referred to as Implantable medical devices (IMDs). IMDs are a segment of the medical device industry that has received significant attention from researchers, financial analysts, and others over the years.



A variety of types of pacemakers and modes of pacing have been developed to restore or sustain a regular heartbeat in different ways. All contemporary pacemakers sense the intrinsic activity and stimulate the heart only when the intrinsic heart rate falls below the programmed pacing rate. Essentially all contemporary pacemakers also incorporate rate responsive capability.
