An exercise setting only?


Has anyone had any seetings on their Medtronic where it performs differently at the higher exercise rates like above 140?



Hope this helps

Member frankmcw2 is one of our Medtronic members with quite a lot of experience optimising his settings. He has helped me in the past.  You might like to send him a private message with more information?   He is certainly a member who believes that our Medtronic pacemakers can be made to perform well for us with the appropriate settings and that we may not need to look to another manufacturer for a solution.

You could ask whether he could kindly send his suggestion paper "Medtronic Adjustments for Multi-Sports Activities" or anything else relevant to help you?  Frank I believe has worked with a Medtronic technician to get his settings optimised.

Exercising at HR over 140

I am not sure I follow your question. Are you asking how the PM in a rate adaptive mode would handle exercise induced HR over the MSR or MTR?

I'll drop Frank a message thanks Gemita.

Hi Rch

My natural pacemaker works fine so I have no problem raising my heart rate but any settings I have been put on so far to enable ventricular pacing at higher heart rates means I am paced all of the time.

I was wondering if it is possible to have basic minimum pacing until above 150bpm for example.
