Not happy with new Biotronik CLS device.
I recently got a new Biotronik CRT defib pacemaker. This is my 5th device so I am very familliar with how they work and how to tune the settings. I specifically chose the biotronik because I was sick of the accelerometer only based systems. They either tend to overshoot or undershoot for a given situation. I was very excited to get this new CLS device but have been very dissapointed in the first week.
I have all the rate response settings very conservative. Max tracking rate is 130. CLS and Accelerometer gain are both low.
The issue is that this machine constantly over paces me for no rhyme or reason. I gently get in bed. 130BPM. I gently brush my teath. 130 BPM. Im just standing static after walking. It ramps me up to 130bpm. Its very uncomfortable and has allready causes some afib episodes. Im worried there wont be a resolution to this as I allready have the sensor gains very conservative. I really wish there was more parameters to tune this system. Something is not right and I wont be able to tolerate this device if I can't find resolution. This sounds a lot like the "sticky CLS" that DESMODRONE posted. Any advice would help.
