How happy patients become unhappy
I'm in the EP clinic having a micro-adjustment to my PM's settings - one of which excites some interest from the EP tech (boring electro-physiology stuff). My box does a fantastic job for me, and I'm very happy with it.
'Oh,' says the EP tech, 'you have Minute Ventilation enabled. We normally turn that off,' he continues in a nonchalant way. And this in a centre where I had thought that they use a lot of BostonSci PMs.
Oh, good grief! (expletive abbreviation deleted)
I recognise that I didn't handle this comment very well, but managed to convince the tech not to fiddle with this setting - I was only in to have a tiny tweak to my MSR.
All ended well, my settings report shows that nothing else was changed, and the reports confirm what I had been expecting.
But very odd. If the EP tech hadn't been the sort to at least check with the patient, I might have had the most important feature of my box disabled.
