I have 3rd degree av block. My pacemaker goes in in a few days. My question is should I expect medications as well as the PM. ?


3rd degree block

If you have a normal pacing rhythm and only 3rd degree block than the pacer will capture your normal sinus rhythm and electrically transmit an electric pulse to generally your right ventricle.

This bypasses the block.  So generally unless there is something else going on no extra medications are indicated.

You know you're wired when...
