Pacemaker and Defibrillator Checkups
The heart is required to maintain a fast-enough heartbeat and rhythm to keep blood flowing throughout the body. Pacemaker and defibrillator devices are sometimes implanted in the body to keep the heart beating properly. Periodic checkups are required to examine these devices. We also provide monthly trans-telephone pacemaker checkups. For more information, call (608) 756-6868 or (800) 261-6868.
