Atrial tachycardia episodes, are they normal?
Just had my first visit with my new EP, although she kept saying she is technically an "engineer" not a tech (still not sure what that means). Anyways she did a much more thorough interrogation then my prior tech, seemed to know her stuff. She said I have been having "quite a number" of atrial tachycardia episodes. I told her I had some in the past and that my old tech said it was normal in people paced in both ventricle and atrium, she looked like she disagreed when I tried to get more information out of her she politely shut me down and said the doctor will go over it (in other words I'm not allowed to tell you what I see because the hospital doesn't want me to get them sued). Any information on this would be helpful. Additional info: familial history of AFIb, I have complete heart block as a result of an infection and surgical complications, 100 percent paced in ventricular, paced about 15 percent of the time in atrium.
