need interpretation of monitor report
Cardiologist's office sent latest quarterly report via email, and I need some help interpreting a few things.
Under heading: Atrial Lead Undersensing, it says:
"Atrial lead signal amplitude suboptimal. Stability of the signal over time needs to be monitored"
"Suboptimal" means not optimal. What kind(s) of problems does this cause, and should I be asking doctor about it? My next FTF appointment isn't till January.
Another section says "Stored EGMs are consistent with or suggestive of premature ventricular contractions ,1%" Interpretation???
And: "A Pacing 40%, RV pacing 99% AT/AF burden 1%" I guess that means right ventricle needs paced 99% of the time, which jives with what they told me at last appt. But what does the other stuff in that line mean? Thanks.
You know you're wired when...
Your ICD has a better memory than you.
I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
