Bleeping in the night


I'm 43 years old and 5 days post pacemaker implantation with dual chamber DDDR for sinus node dysfunction and symptomatic bradycardia. I feel a lot better already apart from wound and anaesthetic effects, which are improving thankfully. 

I was woken by bleeping from the device last night. Should I be concerned?

Any experience or explanation would be awesome.

Thank you



Something not right here

Hi Lesley:

I'm fairly sure that Accolade is a trademarked model name from Boston Scientific, not Medtronic.  Is yours Azure, perhaps?

I understand from other users that some of the Medtronic models do bleep if there is an urgent issue that needs to be seen to: please call your EP doc or PM follow up clinic *today* - this may be very urgent.

Best wishes.

Thank you

All ok thanks

Turns out my device cannot bleep! 

I must have dreamt it. Been a tough week ha ha ☺

Thank you for your support and feedback.

The local transformer near our house blew a fuse with a bang that woke me at about 2AM years ago - and we really had lost mains power.

For the next three months I woke up several times in the small hours having heard the same bang - but just in my dreams.

Please do check your bio/device: I'm sure that Medtronic don't have an Accolade model.  Your Pacemaker ID card should have the correct details, but please don't put serial numbers on this forum.

Best wishes.

You know you're wired when...

Your signature looks like an EKG.
