St. Jude device check
A week ago I had a very strange visit in my cardiology office. I questioned to myself that it had been scheduled on-line without consulting me but I see this group so infrequently that I assumed it was routine and it was not. 5 1/2 weeks after my nighttime device check I was summoned to their office to be told from their device technicians that there was something wrong with my pc. If I had known this was not routine I would have asked someone to go with me to be "my ears" because of my hearing loss. The experience has left me with a sense of total communications break down. Because I wanted to walk away with some understanding of the issue I asked them to write it down. I have a post-it note that says *changed lower rate to 80 bpm; *made adjustments to atrial sensivity; *changed mode to DDDR. Evidently my pc lead was reading noise reversion signals incorrectly.
My visit took an hour for the many adjustments they made and possibly because something they did made me light headed. The technicians were very kind although they could not answer my questions; therefore I have an appointment with the NP in October. By October it will have been 9 1/2 weeks since my pc developed this problem without answers and unsatisfying communication. I do trust that after an hour in the office the problem was corrected for now but......lack of communications generates extreme uncertainity.
I just don't know what to do next. Should I be concerned? Advice and encouragement are welcomed. Thank you. I don't understand these terms and how they apply to me. I've had my pc since March '17, a-fib my problem and I am doing fine or so I thought. Thanks again!
