Three month appointment intervals
I have a Medtronic Azure, dual lead pacemaker. It's been implanted for almost three years now. I'm copying the notes from my last appointment a couple of weeks ago. Some of you have fairly deep knowledge of what the notes below might indicate. I'd appreciate your comments, particularly on what may be causing the 'noise'. Many thanks.
Routine pacemaker follow-up intensified for RV lead watch. Device appears to be functioning appropriately. 43 ventricular high rates noted, EGMs reviewed appear to be likely noise on ventricular lead as noted previously. Ventricular senses appear slightly irreg. Able to recreate noise in clinic with myopotential muscle movements-pushing hands together. 2224 short v-v intervals noted. Remains UNI sensing. No programming changes made today. Next clinic assessment will be in 3 months. (Technician sign off, doctor to review)
Data reviewed, tracings do suggest "noise", no symptoms at present but will continue to need close follow up. (Doctor's sign off)
You know you're wired when...
You run like the bionic man.
My pacemaker has ultimately saved mine and my unborn childs life for which I am thankful.
