Is it true that AT/AF includes more than just AFib?
It is my understanding that the AT/AF data recorded by my pacemaker (previously a Medtronic, and now a Boston Scientific) includes more than just AFib -- it can include other atrial misbehavior. Can anyone confirm or disconfirm?
Earlier this year I had a period of near-constant palpitations. When I went to the doctor, the folks who read my pacemaker said I was having AFibs. But the doctor read the EKG and said no: it's not AFibs, it's actually Atrial Premature Contractions. So apparently these APCs were showing up in my pacemaker's AT/AF data. What I'm getting at with this little story is: I suspect that people tend to assume AT/AF means AFib, when the real situation could be more complicated.
Can anyone confirm or disconfirm?
