Hiss Lead Pacing

I'd appreciate a technical discussion with someone informed/experienced with Hiss Bundle Pacing.  I would be really interested in hearing from anyone who has had a Hiss bundle lead installed.

HIS Bundle Pacing

Thanks for the comments, Swangirl.  I had already seen the video you recommended and I have taken active steps to become informed.  Enrolled in an online course in "Clinical Interpretation of ECG Waves" and bought an ECG machine.  The course is very good and I can understand most of the things the doctors talk about -- I recommend it.  The ECG machine is impractical if you don't have someone to assist you who is also interested in learning.  Of course, I didn't get it to become an exspert, just to have enough experience so that I understood in general what doctors and others were talking about.

I am learning from you and others that once I get a pacemaker I should not expect the nuanced responsiveness in my heart rate that I am used to in natural pacing.

I would appreciate any advice you have based on your experiences.  I am also very active -- heavy labor is my primary exercise and I like to hike in the Sierras and occasionally visit the gym.  I am 77 and have Bradycardia.

You know you're wired when...

You can feel your fingers and toes again.

I feel so blessed to have this little gem implanted in me. When I think of the alternative it is quite overwhelming sometimes.
