New pacemaker/AICD feeling hard strange beats
My husband (37y hx PTSD- fmr Military, RBBB, new HF disgnosis NICM of unknown origin- still having tests done) had a StJude PM/dual chamber ICD placed Monday for periods of low HR(low 30’s) and heart failure (36%RV 49%LV). He’s been having what feels like small shocks that he can feel that matches his HR and occasionally “hard beats that make me feel like I am going to pass out”. Has anyone experienced either of these and if so, what was it? Was there a fix for it? I’ve worked Surgical CVICU as a RN but I don’t have a lot of experience with new devices in otherwise healthy people. We appreciate any input.
