Pacing percentages and AV block
OK, I admit I'm confused. I am coming up on one year with a dual chamber Medtronic PM...Implanted due to complete AV block and since diagnosed as 2nd and 3rd degree heart block.
My 3 month transmission was sent on 4/30/2021 and I just heard from my clinic on my results. I was told that Atrial pacing - 24.5% and Ventricular pacing- 1.2%.
My confusion is on this..If I have some degree of AV block, shouldn't the ventricular pacing be the highest percentage ? What am I missing here ? Or is the atrium pacing the ventricle ?
Also I've been having some palpatations and SOB, very inconsistently. I told the device nurse this but she didn't seem concerned.
Can anyone explain, in simpliest terms possible...:)
