Pacemaker not recording events?
I have had a Boston Scientific pm since 2013. I also have a remote device that reads my pm and sends the info to my EP. I have had episodic A-fib about 5-6 times a year since 2004.(I do not have a defibrillator, only a pm.) A month ago I went into A-fib which seemed different from previous event with extremely heavy heartbeats, so I paid a visit to ER. They checked me over, did blood work and the ER doc said yes, you have A-fib, but everything else was ok.
I called my EPs office the next day and, after reading my remote report, was told I didn't have A-fib. I kind of got into an argument with the person that checked the report but she was adamant, that I hadn't had A-fib and told me my pm was working perfectly and no A-fib had been recorded. My pm interrogation a year ago showed I had 5 more years of battery and I only experienced A-fib 1 percent.
Is it possible that my pm didn't record the A-fib event? And, has anyone else experienced it.
Thank you in advance for your responce.
