Yes, probably. For chronic heart failure, you should get cardiac resynchronization therapy, which uses a device called biventricular pacemaker to be implanted in your heart.
Yes. A pacemaker is a small device that sends electrical impulses to the heart muscle to maintain a suitable heart rate and rhythm. A pacemaker may also be used to treat fainting spells (syncope), congestive heart failure, and, rarely, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
