Hi everyone. I come from Vietnam. My father has implanted a pacemaker (PM) since April 2016. PM manufactured by St. Jude medical.
The PM runs from VP18% (June 2016) to VP100% (8/2/2018), threshold 0.3V 0.6ms, Impedance 525 Ohm.
My father tested PM in Nov 2017 with VP63%, Threshold 0.5V 0.4ms, Impedance 560 Ohm.
My father suffered bradycardia (slow heartbeat). I am a bit of surprised and sad when I realise that the PM runs completely after only 2 years. It is too fast, isn't it??? Or Normal??? After out of battery, is there any chance for him to replace other new PM??? Without PM, my father will go to the morge, won't him?
If diet or life-style changes, VP100% will change. VP100% decreases to below index, doesn't it?
His stomach was cut 2/3 in the past. He eats rice, vegetable, meat, milk, etc, less fat, less sodium, less sugar. I would like Dad live longer than.
