Sleep apnea and PM.
Received my PM 1/19/2021
I just had a sleep apnea test . (two day home test) I requested it due to my diagnosis of SSS. I heard sleep apnea can cause isssues with your electrical system.
Sure enough it came back that I have severe sleep apnea.(AHI 52.9) Now I wonder if this was the issue all along. Any one have a pm implant due to sleep apnea?
On the test result it stated that my HR lowest reading was 38. My pm is set to kick in at 60. I called my PM nurse and she stated that the peripheral pulse is different than the actual hr and the report was probably wrong . That doesnt sound right to me. A hr is a hr correct? I was hooked up to pulse /o2 sensor two nights.
I had the nurse run an evaluation on my pm to make sure its working. I am waiting for her to call back,but I assume it is working or she would have called back sooner than later.
Thoughts on the HR or sleep apnea and PMs?
