Pacemaker battery replacement
My dad is past 7 years on his first pacemaker battery. Every week we get an emailing report from the hospital showing the complete health, status and events on the device. Around October 2022 it showed 6% battery, 3 months remaining on the reports. Since then it has slowly made it's way down to "Battery is at 1%, <3 months remaining". It has stayed at 1% for over 3 months. <3 could mean anything from 1 minute to 2 months and 29 days. The device rep that is responsible for reading the weekly reports has several times comfirmed we cannot schedule the battery replacement until the device gives an ERI message. The only thing I see on the report is Battery Status: MOS. Is this normal for the battery to ride at 1% for this long? What does MOS actually mean? It's a Boston Scientific pacemaker.

Lifetime warranty no longer gives peace of mind.
I wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for pacemakers. I've had mine for 35+ years. I was fainting all of the time and had flat-lined also. I feel very blessed to live in this time of technology.
