I had a medtronic DTMA2QQ fitted in January this year (3rd), everything is healing up nicely, yes you know its there but generally its good, my basic problem stems from MI in 1993 Cabg1994 left ventricular dysfunction, which as time has passed got worse to the point where EF was down to 34% hence the CDT-D, and yes it makes a difference, the crushing breathlesness has gone, I can still get out of breath if I push it, but not like before, what I am still (despite reading as much as I can here) unsure about are the declared terms on my implant record card, so what is Brady Pacing with DDD 60-130 bearing in mind that it appears that my resting HR is , overnight as low as 48 and usually around 50, sometimes now I am waking in the morning really breathless which concerns me, any pointers towards a proper explanation would be great, at my first clinic, the clinitian was not really forthcoming with the kind of info that would give peace of mind, let alone settle my logical appreciation of the functionality
You know you're wired when...
Muggers want your ICD, not your wallet.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
