New to AFIB
Had my pacemaker implanted in 2014 with no problems to date. Within the past year during interrogation, they have noted a concerning amount of AFIB lasting very short periods. My last interrogation they found over 1300 incidents of AFIB. Approx.800 or so were again for very short periods of time, another 200 were lasting up to 10 minutes, and the one which concerned them the most was one lasting 45 minutes. Since I'm not up to all the terminology used the best I can descibe is my upper chamber was almost 400 while my lower ran over 120. They did note that the lower switch was not turned on, and they plan on doing that in a few weeks. The main reason I'm asking is they want to put me on both beta blockers and blood thinners. Being 76 next month and not taking any meds whatsoever, receiving this info has me concerned. Has anyone info on the effects of taking one over the other....or both...I would appreciate your feedback. Thanks all.!!
