can you treat lung cancer on a person with a pacemaker/defibulator? and what is it ?

User avatar Hi cowboy,
A pacermaker/defibrillator is a device used in people experiencing heart failure. This device assists in regulating the heart rate and rhythm. It is not used in regards to lung cancer. I hope this answers your question. Best wishes.
Sincerely,
Theresa Jones, RN
