Looks like I may have pacemaker induced cardiomyopathy. EP couldn't definitively tell me that's what is causing cardiomyopathy (40% EF) but I've been ventricle pacing at over 90% for a few years and I have a wide QRS (>150ms) so ventricles are definitely outta sync. EP recommends a CRT-P and I'm set to have it placed in less than 2 weeks. This will be my 3rd PM in 4 years:(
Any thoughts? What kind of battery life would I get vs a standard dual lead PM?
You know you're wired when...
Your life has spark.
But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
