Hi All,

Hope someone can answer this query for me,

Device in VVI,  Ventrical sense >99%

Ventrical pace <1%.

Thanks if you can let me know, 



What's the question?

VVI == (V)entricle pacing (V)entricle sensing (I)nhibit pacing on sense

So, it sits there looking for a heartbeat, when it finds it, it inhibits pacing.  If it doesn't see it in some predertermined time, it generates a ventricular pacing pulse - the minimum heart rate.

So, you're sensing a beat 99% of the time and pacing 1%.  99% of the time, your pacemaker is doing nothing but watching.

You know you're wired when...

Your heart beats like a teenager in love.

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
