Alternate ectopics with paced beat
For the past few days I have been getting long periods of alternating ectopic and paced beat. As I have had an AV node ablation I am paced 100%, and my rate is set at 80. But when these ectopics start it means that of the 80 bpm I am only getting 40 effectual ones as the ectopics do not pump blood properly. It is very stressful as I feel quite breathless and cannot do anything. The pacing clinic have looked at a download and said there is nothing they can do and my heart is pacing at 80 even though half of them are useless. Has anyone else had this happen?
