Rate Drop Response
I have ADVISA DR MR SURESCA A3DR01 implanted 3 months ago for intermittent AV block.
About a month ago I had another post here complaining about sudden heart speed ups that went to around 100 bpm for a couple of minutes every time after my last checkup visit. That turned to be Rate drop response. So, some settings changed and that made me feel better. But I still get some episodes during night time and I was wondering if my parameters are appropriate.
So these are my parameters:
Lower Rate: 50 bpm
Detection Type: Drop
Drop size: 25 bpm
Drop rate: 50 bpm
Detection Window: 1,5min
Intervention rate : 100bpm
Intervention Duration 2 min
I think Detection Window is too long and could be changed to smaller but not sure!
Also I do have a question about Lower rate. Is that the base lower rate so my lower rate is set to 50 bpm? I remember my doctor saying that my lower rate is set to 60. But the technical said that my lower rate is 50 when checking the Rate drop response screen.
On the other hand the on the pm manual is written that when Rate drop response is on the lower rate is automatically set to 45 bpm. I am confused about that.
