- Scientists at Northwestern and George Washington University have developed a lightweight pacemaker
Scientists have developed the world’s first wireless pacemaker without a battery. The special thing is that this implant does not need to be removed from the body, it dissolves on its own. Scientists believe that it is a better alternative to such a temporary pacemaker, which is surgically removed after some time after implantation.
That’s why a pacemaker is put in
Scientists believe that this device will one day replace the temporary pacemaker. Some patients need a temporary pacemaker after open heart surgery, heart attack, and drug overdose. During open heart surgery, a temporary pacemaker is sutured to the heart muscle. Once the heart is back to normal, the pacemaker is removed, but the currently prepared device will not need to be removed.
dissolves in 5 to 7 weeks
Scientists at Northwestern and George Washington University, who developed this pacemaker, say it is very thin and light. It uses a remote antenna placed outside the body to charge itself. It is made up of such bio-material which automatically dissolves in the body in 5 to 7 weeks.
It reduces the risk of infection
Researcher John A. Rogers says that placing the hardware in the pacemaker or around the heart puts the patient at risk of spreading infection, but because it does not use a heavy battery, it is lightweight and it also reduces the risk of infection. As a result, it can benefit the patient at a lower cost. Scientists have not clarified how long this device will be ready for use on humans and what its cost will be.
