Ventricular lead not responding
I had my first dual lead pacemaker put in a week ago for sick sinus with bradycardia. I had a checkup with my regular doctor and the found my HR to only be 43. He immediately set me up with a pacemaker check. They could not get the ventricular lead to respond. I was told the lead would need to be replaced and was sent for chest X-ray. The LPN called later and said the doctor did not see a lead fracture and wanted to check it again in a week. Has anyone had this issue and found that waiting fixed the problem?
