In news:

A special type of cardiac ultrasound developed at UPMC allows doctors to pinpoint the placement of pacemaker wires on the heart, according to a recent study from the hospital system.
Cardiac pacemakers are used to treat bradycardia, which is a heart rate that is too slow.
Like everything else in our lives, implanted medical devices, such as pacemakers , brain implants and cardiac defibrillators, are more connected than ever via wireless capability.
Melvin Croft, supervisor of the cardiac cath lab at Western Baptist, said he expects an increase in the MRI-safe pacemakers .

In science:

For the latter, an analysis of the implications of fibres geometry over the cardiac muscle is needed, in the framework of a theoretical model for heart activity assuming several pacemakers bounded to the fibres in the heart complex geometry.
Complex dynamics of the biological rhythms: gallbladder and heart cases
Infusion pumps, patient monitors, electrocardiograms, portable CAT machines, pulse oximeter sensors, heart rate monitors, pacemakers, breathing sensors, cardiac defibrillators, activity sensors, and insulin pumps are some examples of medical devices which have Bluetooth or WiFi access.
