st jude pacemaker and merlin monitor
My wife and I have received our second St. Judes/Abbott pacers in last few months. As we had same model for 7 years plus, interesting that we got replacements and have same new model again.
She started with Merlin monitor a few months ago and I hooked it up into land line.
I got mine last week and Abbott guys in post surgery said we set up your monitor and you just plug it in and your all set. It is set to work with the cellular device.
First night about 2AM my wife with fantastic hearing hears this beep every 25 se\ so go me up and we went through all the house looking at smoke alarms and every thing electronic but could not Identify source. It lasted a long time. Last two nights she had heard it again and believes it lasts for a few minutes and stop. This morning it was later around 5 AM..
We are convinced its from the Merlin as that is all that h as changed but don't know for sure.
We have to have two monitors as data goes to differnent places according to Abbott guys. Mine is with VA.
I need to call the 800 number on device and talk to someone. I could just wire mine into land line or wait until my wife becomes atuned to the thing. I am deaf so no problem for me.
Has anyone heard of hearing beeps from thier Merlin??/
