- In general, temporary cardiac pacing is indicated when a bradyarrhythmia causes symptoms and/or severe hemodynamic impairment and when permanent cardiac pacing is not immediately indicated, not available, or the risk of inserting a permanent pacemaker exceeds potential benefit.
- Temporary pacemaker is most commonly used for patients with symptomatic bradyarrhythmias, most frequently due to atrioventricular (AV) nodal block. 
- Permanent Pacemaker is indicated in sinus node dysfunction, AV block, post MI and neurally-mediated syncope.
