remote transmission results from sept 20,2022
I just recieved the results, took many tries. I knew i should wait at least a week before contacting the Heart Center. Then we had Hurricane IAN come. So waited another week. Than through the patient portal send a message to the EP who signs electronically(this time on 10/2/2022), no answer from his office. mean while i had written to the cardiologist that i had planned to eat some trigger foods. No answer from her. Then i called the pacemaker clinic(had recieved the report from her before). Message said they would call back in 24 hours, still waiting. Then i called Medical Records, she called me back and told her what i wanted the was from Sept 20 remote transmission and the nightly from then to now. Was told i could pick it up that afternoon. Told her i would be in Monday morning(11/7/2022). I was given a large white envelope nearly 3/4 inch thick. Knew that was not what i wanted. It is interesting each time i pick up the information comes a different way.
There was 51 pages of what i call graph looking that included Monitored AT/AF episode, a Non-sustained VT Episode and Cardiac Compass which included a years worth and a current EGM.
Than a printed AT/AF summary,which has Prior to last session(6days), since last session(22 days) and device lifetime total(37 months). An Arrhythmia Episode List -which has when, time and length. What is interesting 8 AT/AF were all after 10pm (at rest) and 1 VT-NS was at 9am(active) were all on Sept 15. Then one AT/AF Sept 3 at 10am and another on Sept 2 at 5pm.
Single page of Non-sustained VT Episode and 9 single pages of Monitored AT/AF Episodes. Which are the above.
VT/VF counters, Rate Drop Response Episode List which had none.
Rate Histograms again prior to last session (6)days and since last session(22 days).the prior is from the last session to the office intergration.
Parameter 2 pages. Care Alert Events no data has been collected.
Quick look II, there were no Pace-teminated episodes.
Battery and Lead Measurements est 10.1 years , minimum 9.6 and max. 10.5years. Atrial lead position check sucessful.( do not know how that can be seen?)
2 pages of patient information. Now to the summary(which is really all i wanted). Lower rate is set at 60-130. Not pacemaker dependent. Precent paced RA:67 and Percent paced RV:58.5. I had 10 atrial high rate episodes and a review of EGMs demonstate paroxymal atrial fibrillation. the longest lasted 30 seconds. There is a .2% cumulative atrial arrhythmia burden. the 1 VT lasted 3-4 seconds.
Health trends( patient activity, heart rate variablity, average heart rates) are stable. I will continue with the remote follow ups
Diagnoses: Sick Sinus Syndrome(Tachy-Brady Syndrome.
