Replacement pacemaker choice
For all those using the NHS, I would just like to remind you that there is some choice.
You can choose which make of pacemaker to have within your physiological parameters and compatibility with your existing leads and what the hospital has in equipment.
For myself, I am listed (10th June) for what I hope will be a super, Boston Scientific ( no groans, please!) which I hope will help with exercise initiation.
My cardiologist said in all his years he had never been asked to provide a specific make - which just goes to show folk will put up with and get what they are given.
I would urge anyone to exercise their choice and discuss with their NHS cardiologist the pros and cons of different makes of pacemaker.
