Recent appointment today. Question about % of pacer times
Good Evening fellow pacers! I took a different translator friend with me today, and felt SO much better about understanding my new pm!
two weeks ago....which was two weeks post op, I was doing V-rach and Afib.
todays recordings showed NO events! I was asked to cut out Caffiene, alcohol, and begin more exercise! I did not tell him that I had taken a rythmol pill about three times, when I got nervous, and felt what I thought was palpitations. (Remember, this man is only EP in the Andes, within 8 hour drive! I didn’t want to piss him off, especially since I didn’t have good experience in the past)
anyway.....my question is....what does it mean that my Rt lower bi-ventricle lead is pacing all the time? The Rt atria is pacing about 30% of the time?
my rate is set at 70 bpm rest and 130 for exercise. Oh! And that if my pm stops....I am NOT dependent on it! My heart will continue to beat!
what does this mean? The % of pm working times??
