The simplest pacemakers are single-chamber, which can be either atrial or ventricular pacemakers and require implantation of a single-lead in the respective chamber however, their function is limited to the implanted chamber, which can limit cardiac function in the presence of av dissociation. The history of the implantable cardiac pacemaker is traced from its inception in 1951, through its development and trials in 1958, to its successful implantation in 10 patients in 1960, and on to its commercial realization the usage of implanted pacemakers has been ever increasing since then.
