Help with pacemaker selection for cycling
Hi, I'm trying to help my brother who has bradycardia and sick sinus syndrome. He is also in a-flutter. He had an ablation for a-fib about 4 years ago and now needs a pacemaker. He is 66 and is an avid cyclist, he goes mountain bking up very steep trails. He wants to keep riding until he absolutle cannot. His doctor has told him he will put in whatever pacemaker he wants. He is considering Biotronik or Boston Scientific. Two of the doctors he has seen have recommended Medtronic. He likes the Biotronik and Boston Scientific because of the way they claim to respond to the heart under load.
Does anyone have any experience with these two brands and cycling or exercise? I've tried calling each of the companies to speak to a technician but have not been able to do that. All I've talked to is the person who answers the phone. Everyone has been really nice, but I think my brother needs real life information from people and I thought this is the place to get that.
Thanks in advance for reading this post.
