Healthy Living: Tiny Pacemaker

Bundle branch block is a congenital heart condition that causes the electrical impulses in the heart to misfire.

People with the condition often need a pacemaker to keep their hearts in sync.

In Healthy Living, see how cardiologists at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York are using a recently approved tiny wireless device in kids, so they don’t miss a beat.

The Anthonys say their youngest son, who is 13, does not have the genetic heart condition, but their 7-year-old daughter may have it, and may need back up “pacing” from a device in the future.
