Ventricular lead pulsing

Hi, I had a dual chanber PPM fitted November 2019. For the past 10 days or so I have very regular strong pulsating from the bottom lead. I was having this 1% of the time when I had check ups in January/February.....now it is more like 40% of the time. Does anyone think this is clinically significant? I have been having some SVT's...thank you for your thoughts.

Clinically significant?

I doubt it'd dangerous but anything that affects your lifestyle (QOL) is significant. It's not all that uncommon and should be fixable.

check with EP

Have you sent a transmission to your EP since Jan/Feb?  I would think your EP would say something to you if your pacing percentage has changed that much.  If you're concerned, make an appt.  

Depends.

Did they make changes in January? That could explain the increase in pacing.

Hi

 

thank you for your thoughts. There had been a malfunction and the device had switched to safety mode. All fixed and back to normal now.

I wasn't really self-conscious about it. I didn't even know I had one until around six or seven years old. I just thought I had a rock in my side.
