Noise from Pacemaker
I am wondering if anyone else can describe to me what the sound the pacemaker makes when the battery is low. I have a guidant pacemaker model 1290 for little over 2 years and last night I heard a sound coming from my chest. My last visit to see the Tech was in July and I my battery history shows I have over 5 years left. I called Boston Scientific/Guidant this morning and the technician stated that my pacemaker does not make any noise when the battery is low. Has anyone else had the same thing happen to them? Thanks for reading.
You know you're wired when...
You have a 25 year mortgage on your device.
The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
