Just sent back my zio patch hoping finally they can see the issue, last year I had the 24 hour Holter but no episodes other than a 6% pvc burden. I did have four 3 hour Bigeminy and erratic events during this monitor so hopefully I can finally get help. Thanks to my Apple Watch I have been able to see things more clearly. My cardiologist didn't think last year I had enough issues to go to pacemaker even though my bpm is often in the 30's. Events are not consistent but often like weekly and every time up to now have not happened during any recording. The APRN thought I was bad and really thought I would have a pacemaker last year so I joined the club but the cardiologist said no and I got to suffer fainting spells for another year. It has gotten much worse and sent me by ambulance to the hospital four weeks ago in VT during a pandemic. That freaked me out as I waited the 14 days to hopefully not have the virus. I was lucky no exposure but now I am waiting to find out if I need to worry as pacemaker surgery I believe is elective and will have to wait until things are safer. Have any other members had issues with events not happening during recordings delaying help?
