Rate Adaptive Pacing (Accelerometer) for Orthostatic Hypotension (OH)
Ive been suffering from orthostatic hypotension for the past couple of years. Had my pacemaker put in 1.5 years ago for 2:1 block but it didnt help with OH. I saw a new EP (dept chair) a couple of days ago. Unfortunately his fellow did most of the workup so cant say Im all that confident in what he did.
From what he described it seems he turned my accelerometer sensor on to max. So much for fine adjustments and a light touch lol. Now when I stand my heart rate jumps from set point of 70 to 110-130. Seems to make me feels worse.
Anyone else have any experience with rate adaptive pacing? Maybe it's too sensitive? Maybe a max hr should have been set. Gonna test it out for a week and see but looking for ideas and experiences. thanks!!
