Living with a malign heart is a terribly difficult and sad. If you are young and are in the prime phase of your life, then the situation becomes even worse. Relatively, one such patient visited a doctor after experiencing 'cardiac seizures', a condition that causes a heart to rhythm abnormally.
But after getting treated with a pacemaker, she really felt bizarre changes on her skin. What this change led, will leave you freaking out. Check out what was surprising in her case.
A 29-year-old Gemma Bosankon suffered from cardiac seizures. As a result, she had a pacemaker and a heart monitor put in to evaluate her cardiac casualties.
A pacemaker is a device that helps in controlling arrhythmia. They are placed in the chest to allow the heart to beat at a normal rate.
Between 2009 and 2012, pacemaker caused Gemma to face a lot of issues. She visited the hospital again after she witnessed a weird spot on her chest.
Then she found device like something, that was poking out of her chest's skin.
This defined a rough location of pacemakers and heart monitors where they were actually put in, at the beginning. The hole got extended later.
You can see what was popping out of Gemma's chest. Scary!
Gemma had that device removed successfully and got recovered completely. She started exercising and got over all her fears.
That can be known as any other pacemaker position change without considering the functionality of pacemaker. Only it is proven that, displacement malfunctions the pacing system.
It is found that 2.5 % of patients with installed pacemakers in them go through the issue of displacing of the pacemaker. However, it is still the rarest thing for a pacemaker to come out of the chest's skin.
