Help with VT
Good Morning. I’m writing this from the hospital and need some help. I received my Dual Chamber PM 7/26/18 and had no issues whatsoever until 1/05/19. While drying off my dog I stood up and went into VT. It was prolonged (30+ minutes) resulting in a trip to the ER and overnight stay. I was discharged and had a subsequent VT about two weeks later while putting my duvet cover on my duvet
EP has just told me he thinks my lead may have punctured my septum but says that is not the cause of my VT. He is emphatic that the PM cannot be causing VT. I feel otherwise as both times I’ve gone into it, it has felt mechanical. I also get out without intervention. It seems when I move my left arm vigorously, I start the VT. Can anyone confirm the PM can I fact cause VT? The EP is recommending replacing my PM with an IAD. I am ok, but really feel it is unnecessary.
