Objective: To develop an educational technology for people living with an implantable heart device.

Methods: This is a methodological study carried out in the period from August 2020 to April 2021, carried out in two stages: integrative literature review and elaboration of educational technology.

Results: Based on the evidence, it was possible to list generating themes such as the perception of people living with an implantable cardiac device, which served as the basis for the creation of a podcast entitled “Alphabet of the pacemaker”, with self-care guidelines from A to Z for the after time implantation of the device.

Conclusions: The construction of evidence-based educational technology is a strategy to subsidize health educational practices and pacemaker users' understanding of health care after device deployment.
