Cardiac event recorder
I have recently been given a cardiac event recorder for a 7 day observation of arrythmias that I experience despite having a St Jude dual chamber pacemaker. Since being wired up to this new device my resting pulse rate has consistently recorded 80 bpm. My pacemaker was set at 55 bpm as a minimum and has been consistent at that level when I am resting for more than 6 months. Interestingly I have not experienced any arrythmias although my heart rate now is 25 bpm more than the original settings. Is it possible that the Cardiac Event recorder has interferred with my pacemaker settings - Has anyone got any thoughts on this ?
