New Pacemaker WAY too sensitive
Just received a Biotronik for SSS and CI. 3 days post op. I’m in good shape and, until recently , always had basal HR in 40s. Device is set at 40/150. However, now my basal hr is in 70s. I feel uncomfortable with a fluttering feeling in my chest. When I do very simple action like walk up stairs,it goes to 84. When I walk a quarter mile I get tachycardia with hr 120-130, and I have to sit down- worrying about passing out. Want to go back in and get this pm removed! I was told the sensitivity setting is too high,and am scheduled to get it changed from medium to low. Am worried that even this will not help. Will it?
also read on this site that the “CLs” feature on this Biotronik may be the culprit, and that it should be turned off. Does anybody have any experience with this?
