Getting Pace Maker next week
Hi, thanks for allowing me to join this group. I will be getting a pacemaker next week after they complete some additional catherizations. Any information that you can share with me will be greatly appreciated...This is all strange territory for me and you don't get much general information from busy doctors. Some questions I have are listed below, but any general information you can share to prepare me will be apprediated.
1. I have Bradycardia (slow heart rate) How do I know which type pacemaker I will receive, just a standard pacemaker or one that also includes a defibulator etc.
2. What minimum and max heart rates do they normally sent them at when first installed.
3. Will I feel substancially more energetic and if so will it be immediate?
4. I have emphysema with breathing problems. Will a pacemaker make an improvement with my breathing
Thanks so much in advance..
