DDDR on temporary pacemaker sheet.
Bradycardia with heart block pacemaker fitted 10/11/2020.
No prior issue of being able to raise heart rate.
I noticed on my pacemaker temp card it states DDD(R)
A quick search on this forum says the R stands for rate response and that it is required in people who struggle to raise their heart rate in response to increased requirements.
Can you think why I would have been set with this on? Is it an initial setting to err on the side of safety until they have checked if I have that issue?
