Recent remote transmission question
So I'm 3 1/2 years in with my CRT-P, and post atrial flutter ablation. It appears that I am in atrial flutter for the majority of the time, which is why I am on Eliquis.
The report says "Episodes of AF/AFL shows occaisional undersensing with periods of pacing near max track. Review of presenting rhythm suggests RV paced beat comes before LV impulse. BIV pacing programed 0 offset. "
And then later on, the recommendation is to consider VVIR programing.
So my questions are:
If up until now, my sensing and pacing checks were okay, what changed? Could it be progression of underlying disease? When the pacer rep took the necessary steps for my MRI last month, could she have changed something?
Will VVIR save battery life? It looks like I lost a year of battery since my last check 3 months ago. And believe me, I'm in no hurry to replace!
The earliest appointment available is on 1 month, but I am looking to arm myself with info.
