Strange tachycardia every day since the PM was incerted.
Hi, I recieved a Boston Scientic PM about 3 months ago. For slow HR and pauses ( 2nd degree block ) Since day one of going home I have had these bouts of tachycardia and go into v pacing. I have had the device checked and they say "Its working fine." I was told it would only work if my HR was below 60 at night when sleeping or resting. Twice I've been to the tech and she say "its working fine, just some SVT. I have rapid pulse two or three times a day. I have a home EKG. It shows the v pacing and what looks like PMT. The tech tells me my device records everything. She saw some SVT but no PMT. On a second note the v pacing can be with a HR of like 63-80 as well and I can be doing most any activity and it occurs. Can anyone tell me why the PM is doing this? Or have any of you experienced this? I dont have a cardio recheck until July 11th and reaching my Cardio Doc next to impossible. The tech refuses to see me again until my scheduled date also July 11 2019. ( note when my hearts is being v paced it feels like its going to pound out of my chest. ) Thank you.
You know you're wired when...
You can take a lickin and keep on tickin.
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.
