Are you one of the millions of people who has a pacemaker or has been told that you might need to have a pacemaker implanted? Chances are, you do not quite understand why you need this kind of device, what it does, and what your options are. If you have a pacemaker already, you might wonder what it does. And most of us have had the experience of not quite understanding the doctor when he or she explains things to us.
Help is on the way!
Pacemakers are extremely complicated devices that are implanted within the body, usually in your upper chest. One or more thin wires plugs into the pacemaker at one end and is fixated inside the heart at the other end. Millions of people have these devices. But what do they actually do? Don’t you wish there was a book or something like Pacemakers Made Simple? Well, we have good news. If you want to know more about pacemakers, how they work, why you need them, how they can affect your life, and more … we are offering the Pacemaker 411 Kit.
Before you go any further, I want you to know that I am not a doctor, a nurse, or a clinician of any kind. But I do know about pacemakers. You see, for over 20 years, I worked in the pacemaker industry. I wrote the product manuals for pacemakers, defibrillators, and related products. I’ve actually worked, in one capacity or another, for all five of the world’s major pacemaker manufacturers. I have also written selling sheets for pacemakers, product brochures, scientific reports, white papers, and yes … even the training materials that are used to train the doctors who implant and program these devices.
So, no … I am not a doctor … but I do know pacemakers. And I am presenting this material to help you better understand pacemakers. It’s an entire kit of things to help you understand your pacemaker better and discuss it more clearly with your doctor (and to better understand your doctor’s answers).
Here’s what we’ll send you:
Pacemaker Owner’s Manual
This is a book I wrote aimed specifically at normal, clear-thinking, educated people who have a pacemaker … but just do not happen to know a lot about pacemakers, cardiac arrhythmias, and all the rest. This book will help you learn:
- Why do you need a pacemaker?
- Will you ever be able to not have a pacemaker?
- Can you travel with a pacemaker?
- Will you set off security alarms with your pacemaker?
- What’s the difference between a pacemaker and a defibrillator (and which one do I have)?
You can get this book right now on Amazon. But we’ll offer you an even sweeter deal.
Seat Belt Cushion
If you or a loved one has an implanted pacemaker, you may find that a normal over-the-shoulder seat belt becomes a little uncomfortable. We’ve created a simple cushion that makes the seat belt work great. It’s padded and wraps around the seat belt, fastening with Velcro. You can take it off and put it back on in seconds. It’s completely adjustable and if you drive more than one car, you can remove it and take it with you in a snap.
Here it is in action–that’s not a model, that’s my mom. She does not have a pacemaker, but she is very short and finds that most seat belts have a tendency to choke her! So she uses this. The cushion is padded, black, and says PacemakerPeople.com on it. You just wrap it around the seat belt and press it closed.
We sell these for $9.95.
Two Q&A DVDs
Whenever I meet pacemaker people, I always wish there was time to just sit down and have a cup of coffee and answer their questions. So one day I did just that–well, sort of. I sat down with a camera man at a kitchen table and asked and answered the most common pacemaker questions. These are done as DVDs so you can just watch and listen to an ordinary person use ordinary language to tell you how your pacemaker works. The two DVDs are titled:
Six Things You Thought Were True About Your Pacemaker (But Aren’t) and Three Things You Didn’t Know Were True (But Are)
The 12 Most Common Questions about Your Pacemaker
These aren’t big Hollywood productions, but they contain real information in a very-easy-to-understand format.
These DVDs sell for $10 each.
