Temporary pacemakers are a method of providing short-term cardiac support to patients with various heart conditions. It involves the placement of electrodes on the heart, which are connected to an external pacemaker device that delivers electrical impulses to regulate heart rhythm. This is a complex procedure that requires specialized skills and knowledge to perform safely and effectively. Physicians who specialize in cardiology and electrophysiology are typically responsible for managing temporary pacemakers, and may work closely with other members of the healthcare team to ensure patient safety and optimal outcomes.
