St. Jude Defibrillator and pacemaker
Hello everyone, I had a St Jude Defibrillator and pace maker installed in Nov 2014. Never had a issue until yesterday. I was just at the cardiologist last week and checked my Defibrillator and stated I have a year/year and a half of battery power left. Yesterday I had a vibration when I sat down and thought it was the phone I sat on. Today it went off twice. Lasted 6 seconds and then after 2 seconds it vibrated again for 6 seconds. Called my cardiologist and he just told me to come into his office tomorrow. Does anybody know what causes this? Could it be a low battery warning? Or could it be a multiple of things?
You know you're wired when...
You fondly named your implanted buddy.
My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
