Question

The doctors are now admitting that my husband had 35 episodes of PMT in their care. What does this mean? Should they have tested him for tachycardia? Should they have put a difibulator in him while replacing the pacemaker having known this? Please help!!

...that PMT is occurs with dual chamber pacemakers. Is this the type of pm your husband had?

I believe PMT is pacemaker-mediated tachycardia. Here are some links with information regarding this.

It is my understanding that pacemakers today can be programmed to recognize and stop the cycle of PMT.

Hope this helps?!
