Rate-modulated pacemakers use a physiologic sensor other than the sinus node to adjust the pacing rate according to the physiologic needs of the patient. As rate-modulated pacemakers become more widely used, nurses caring for patients with these devices need to understand pacing physiology as well as rate-modulated pacing technology… CONTINUE READING
