Single chamber atrial pacemakers are uncommonly placed, as they require intact atrioventricular conduction and do not safeguard against its future deterioration. Indications include severely symptomatic sinus bradycardia and the sick sinus syndrome with the tachycardia-bradycardia syndrome. Lead placement is typically in the right atrial appendage. Single chamber ventricular pacemakers have also fallen out of favor, eclipsed largely by dual chamber pacemakers which have leads in both the right atrium and right ventricle. Lead placement should be in the right ventricular apex. Indications for permanent single chamber ventricular pacing include 3 :. Temporary transvenous pacing commonly relies on single chamber pacing, however, with the intended location of the lead tip in the right ventricular apex.

The features and straightforward design of the PACE make it the ideal choice for physicians and nurses when speedy setup of temporary pacing is required in the OR or ICU:. The PACE provides simple access to pacer settings having four large control dials to manipulate the pacemaker mode, rate, amplitude and sensitivity settings. Sensed intrinsic and paced activities are indicated by an LED and audible tones. The PACE is designed to be used with cardiac pacing lead systems for temporary atrial or ventricular pacing.
