"... (Albert S. Hyman) with his brother, an engineer, they developed and patented the "artificial pacemaker" operated by a hand crank and spring motor which turned a magnet (DC current generator) to supply the electricity. The device was used in the New York area and received press coverage, though not acceptance by the medical community." Seymour Furman

"In 1958, Ake Senning, a thoracic surgeon at the Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm, implanted myocardial electrodes and a pulse generator with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery in a 40-year-old patient. Senning and his associate, Rune Elmqvist, an engineer with the Swedish firm Elema Schönander, had developed and tested this pacemaker between 1956 and 1958. The pulse generator failed within a few hours; a successor lasted about 6 weeks. Yet the patient survived, received another pacemaker in 1960, and is still living today. He has had 26 pacemakers altogether.8 13 30 Two years later, William M. Chardack, chief of thoracic surgery at the VA Hospital in Buffalo, NY, carried out the first successful implantation of a battery-powered pacemaker with a myocardial lead. Engineer Wilson Greatbatch had worked with Chardack in designing the device. Chardack used a two-stage surgical procedure: he implanted the lead first, then the pulse generator after 2 months of successful pacing with stable thresholds of stimulation."

"... in the year 2007 more than 5000 patients received a pacemaker in Austria. As of today, an estimated number of 2 million people are living with a pacemaker in the US, i.e., one person in every 150 has a pacemaker. Pacemakers nowadays are comfortable and reliable. Having one helps patients to get back to an almost normal life again." Thomas Rheinbacher
