Running with dual lead PM
I just got implanted with a dual lead PM from Medtronic (Azure XT DR). The reason for the PM is that I have a heart block and my AV node was not working.
The doctors told me that once I get this dual lead PM, I will be naturally paced by the SA node (our natural pacemaker)...meaning once the SA node fires, the PM detects that event and performs the function of the AV node by sending sending the signal to my heart's ventricles.
My question - is there a possibility that the PM will need further adjustment for optimal output from the heart?
