Indications for permanent pacing are divided into 3 classes: class I (necessary), class II (may be necessary; cost-benefit analysis needed), class III (unlikely to be of benefit). Common conditions for which pacing may be indicated are classified according to current guidelines. Pacing modes and nomenclature, lead type and implantation, and troubleshooting are also covered.
