In a normal, healthy heart, the natural pacemaker of the heart is a small mass of specialised tissue. This sets the rhythm of contraction and relaxation by sending out an electrical impulse which leads to an effective heart beat and pumping of the blood around the body. An artificial pacemaker is a device that uses electrical impulses to reproduce or regulate the normal rhythms of the heart.
