MEDTRONIC Circuit Errors
Hello! I recently had a pacemaker checkup, and was informed the Medtronic ADVDD01 pacemaker is experiencing problems with particular settings (And some other pacemakers also possibly). I unfortunatley was using one (VDD) and have been moved to VVIR until an update is found.
"The root cause for this issue is related to a design change to an integrated circuit in a subset of devices that were distributed between 10 March 2017 and 7 January 2019."
(You can use the Medtronic website to see if your pacemaker - via serial number - is affected).
They are hoping that a software update will be developed by the end of the year, but I'm just wondering if there is anyone else on here affected by this? And if so, how are you feeling on your new settings?
Hope everyones doing well <3

The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
