Does anybody know??

Does anyone know what the "ADL" setting is on the PM readout sheet? Mine is set at 95. I tried to ask the doctor but he just said in essence "never mind it's not important". In nursing lingo "ADL" refers to "Activities of Daily Living". Any help from all you PM gurus out there would be appreciated. Your Pacer Friend, Carol

ADL rate

Not a guru but I found this reference if you want to read more:
http://europace.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/7/1/54

It appears on some pacers the ADL rate is the activities of daily living rate. "Activities of daily living rate (ADL rate) is the rate that should be reached during moderate daily activities."

It is just over 10 years since a dual lead device was implanted for complete heart block. It has worked perfectly and I have traveled well near two million miles internationally since then.
