Summary Information: Pacemaker of the Heart

Pacemaker of the Heart: The pacemaker of the heart is a part of the electrical conduction system of the heart. The pacemaker of the heart is located in the wall of the heart's right atrium. The pacemaker of the heart initiates electrical impulses that spread through the atria via the internodal pathways, causing the atria to contract and squeeze blood into the ventricles.

Conditions that afflict the pacemaker of the heart include sinus node arrest, sinus node dysfunction, cardiac arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation, tachydysrhythmias, bradydysrhythmias, heart blocks, myocardial infarction, and cardiac arrest.
