Abstract: In Australia, most patients requiring permanent cardiac pacing have either high grade atrioventricular block or sick sinus syndrome. Many receive simple ventricular demand pacemakers, but more 'physiological' systems are now available that allow changes in pacing rate depending on metabolic needs. The indications for pacemakers and the types available are discussed in this article.
