All the right questions
HI Guys, " Seems like deja voo all over again" (thank you Yogi Berra!) Met with Medtronic rep and asked important questions on the settings. He did not have any previous reports and could not pull them up on his laptop. So much information was n/a. He did "tweak the r/r sensitivity up, and this has left me sob on just the slightest movement. He is in only for a short time in the am on Tues. So I will have to wait till next week to put this setting back to the "normal" setting. He indicated I was "pacing " @ 93% in the atrium and 0 in the ventricle,and overall was doing very well. Also said h/r was 38 to 40 when p/m not used and I told him I had just had my morning b/b dose which would attribute to that.
Disappointing for me to know their was no communication between he and the cardio..........He also felt I was too concerned about my h/r and should just go on as if there was no p/m ........I'm wondering if there is a p/m clinic where you have the opportunity to have meaningful conversations and exercise tests to determine the parameters for your p/m settings. Meeting with cardio on Friday to discuss echo test..
May have made a mistake in this selection as they do not use Medtronc p/m's.....Also noted I could not get any reports from the interrogation as he only has a laptop to work with. He said he would try to mail them to me.........................
Has anyone else had to make changes with docs?
