First Device testing
Happy New Year all.
On 12/11/19 had CrT-d implanted. I had no symptoms prior, worked our regularly, age 67, EF% 34, LBBB - QRS 174. Docs suggested CRTD, so leap of faith, we did it. Before device, my standard resting heart beat52 to 54. (Meds, ie Metoprolol 25mg, keep it low) I noticed post implantation it rose to 60ish.
Yesterday at first device check, they said one of the leads moved a bit but was still in "safe zone"., not sure that is concerning or not. They then increased my resting heart rate to 70 BPM. Not sure why? Do I feel the change, yea. Like drinking to much coffee feeling. Not unbearable but noticeable.
others with crtd, was this similar to your first device check?
thanks in advance for any guidance.
