NE82.12/T82.1 Pacemaker generator dysfunction



Pacemaker generator dysfunction is caused by a variety of factors including, but not limited to, hardware failure, battery depletion, infection, or excessive electrical noise.


The diagnosis of pacemaker generator dysfunction is typically made by a combination of physical examination, electrocardiogram (ECG), and imaging studies. An ECG may reveal abnormal electrical activity, and imaging studies may reveal changes in the pacemaker generator itself.

Differential diagnosis

Possible differential diagnoses include arrhythmia, myocardial infarction, and electrolyte disturbances.


The treatment of pacemaker generator dysfunction depends on the underlying cause of the malfunction. In some cases, a replacement pacemaker generator may be needed. In other cases, the pacemaker generator may need to be reprogrammed or the battery may need to be replaced. Other treatments may include medications and lifestyle modifications.


The prognosis for pacemaker generator dysfunction is generally good. If the underlying cause is addressed, the prognosis is usually good.
