I received a call the other day from a technician looking at my remote monitoring results telling me that my heart rate went to around 200 and I was paced out of an arrhythmia/SVT. No shock received.
I was just wondering if a SVT that is paced out of by a pacemaker is less severe and not as serious as an SVT that one has to receive a shock from your ICD?
Is it uncommon to have your pacemaker pace you our of these SVT? More common than being shocked?

You fondly named your implanted buddy.
Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
