How do the doctors decide your pacemaker setting?
Just wondering how the doctors decide what your lower and higher heartbeats should be set at. The doctor that put my pacemaker in only saw me during my hospital stay, as I was on vacation when I had to have my pacemaker implanted. The electrophysiologist that I saw before going on vacation did not think my symptoms were heart related, he was pretty sure it was due to vasovagal syncope. I had only seen him this one time. The cardiologist I was referred to has not changed my settings. My low is 50 and high is set at 140.. I feel during exercise 50 is a little to low. I don't see my cardiologist for a year. Just wanted a little input, before I call. I was diagnosed with Mobitz 2 type 2 AV heart block. I have had my pacemaker almost 7 months and have had it integrated once, and 2 remote transmissions. I have a Medtronic Azure MRI model W1DR01. Thanks for any input.
