What Can Be Learned?
Normally I lurk and learn. Every now and then I come out of my hidey hole with a question.
We know the heart is both electrical and mechanical. When your provider interrogates your PM he gets info on the device as well as the electrical aspects of the heart. At least that is my understanding.
My question is, is there anything from the information the provider receives from the interrogation that would give him/ her any indications of what may be going on with the mechanical portion of the heart? Or are they so exclusive that your electrical portion could be fine and yet you could have any number of heart issues...ischemia, atherosclerosis, valve issues etc?
Thank you for your wisdom and insight.
