Ken :

Hello,Pacemakers do have an internal beeper system. The beeper starts beeping when the battery gets pretty low so you know to get yourself to the doctor right away.

A standard pacemaker battery usually lasts around 6-10 years. The battery strength should be checked regularly every 6 months. If you hear a beeping sound coming from your pacemaker, you should call your doctor right the way.

when you say right away do you mean that i should go to the hospital are see my Dr in the morning

Generally the units give a advance warning of around 6 months before it gets completely depleted. It is better you see your doctor coming morning itself.
