Not to worry!!! It's not uncommon at all to check it more than once, and the 24 hr monitor will tell them things that the pacer can't. All normal! It all adds up to help them get the settings just right for his needs.

Pacers are incredibly sophisticated technology. Years and years ago they put the minimum setting in then sent the patient home. Now they have dozens of settings they can adjust to respond to our individual needs and make our hearts beat virtually normally.

You know you're wired when...

You know the difference between hardware and software.

Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
