Sick Sinus Syndrome
Hi, I am new, and while I do not have a pacemaker, I have had sick sinus syndrome for nearly 6 years. Everything looks great with testing and EF, the only new finding was a 3.7 second pause in the middle of the night once during the 14 day monitor. EP says no pacemaker yet, as my average heart rate is 60 and i can increase heart rate with exertion to 85 to 90 percent. I am 55 and had an asd closed 6 years ago with a Maze ablation, which could have caused the sick sinus syndrome. I have no symptoms, a few pvcs, and occaisional SVT. I would like to put off getting a pacemaker as long as I can. What was the tipping point where your EP said now is the time? Thanks!
