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?
You know you're wired when...
A thirty-day guarantee is not good enough.
The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
