Help with Rhythm Freeze
I have an appointment with my EP this week and in preparation for it I was looking at a Rhythm Freeze (ECG / EGM) from one of my downloads. It looks different to others on file.
I’m being paced at 60 bpm, and the rhythm freeze shows pretty regular QRS complexes, (approx 4 large squares between every 1 downward pacing spike - counting below the line). However, there are also what look like mini, but incomplete, QRS complexes between each of the QRS complexes. Occasionally there are 2-3 of them between beats. It looks to my untrained eye as if my heart is regularly trying to respond to something.)
Has anyone had anything similar explained to them or does anyone more knowledgeable than me know what might be causing them?
I will ask the doctor when I see him, but just wanted a rough idea.
You know you're wired when...
Muggers want your ICD, not your wallet.
I just want to share about the quality of life after my pacemaker, and hopefully increase awareness that lifestyles do not have to be drastically modified just because we are pacemaker recipients.
