In 1958 surgeons place the first fully implantable heart pacemaker into a human patient. The history of using electricity to stimulate and regulate heartbeat was more than half-a-century old when Ake Senning, a cardiac surgeon at Sweden's Karolinska University Hospital, implanted the pacemaker in heart patient Arne Larsson. The pacemaker failed after three hours. A second pacemaker was implanted, and this one worked for two days before giving out. Source: Wired
