Smallest Pacemaker Ever

Bradley Mattes   |   June 16, 2022

History was made at the Norton Children’s Heart Institute, associated with Louisville School of Medicine.  They were the first to place a tiny pacemaker into a premature baby just 28-weeks old.  The baby was born with congenital structural heart defects that led to a slow heart rate.  Normally they wait until the baby is four-and-a-half to five-and-a-half pounds.  This little baby weighed less than three pounds, but the surgery couldn’t wait.  So, doctors used a pediatric pacemaker specially modified for such a tiny baby.  Sadly, abortions are legally committed in America on babies the same age as this infant, or even older.  But in this case the child was wanted, so extra measures were taken to preserve the baby’s life.  We’re working for a day when all babies will be equally protected.
