I feel confident in saying that you cannot acquire a pacemaker and send it to South America. The doctors know what your family members condition is. I am sure the hospital or doctors in South America can acquire the pacemaker that your family member needs. There are several different types of pacemakers and you would have to know exactly what your family members condition is. There are single chamber pacemakers that are used for minor heart rate support. There are two chamber pacemakers that are used for major support of heart rate. There are 3 chamber pacemakers that are used for congestive heart failure. What kind of pacemaker that will be used will be dependent upon your family members condition.
