Need for rate response
Is there a electrophysiologist cardiologist out there who can explain to me why my heart decided to not pick up as it used to and therefore the rate response had to be turned on? Had the dual lead PM implanted in Feb. 2017, and this was done a few months ago. I asked what this meant and was told, "it means it is a good thing you have a pacemaker." All that has done is create anxiety on my part that is causing me to seek some counseling on accepting the situation. But I still would like to know the "why" about this. Anyone?
You know you're wired when...
Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.
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.
