I have been doing well and getting a good amount of exercise at my local gym. I was wondering if anyone knows if there are typically adjustments that need made to the pacemaker rate response settings when your energy levels increase? I am wondering if that might contribute to the pounding heart rates that I have been noticing when at rest or just doing light activity?
Hi, don't quite know if it's the answer to your question, but my pacer is set to fire on demand. It automatically adjusts depending on what my activity is, you can always check with your pacer clinic & see if this is something for your lifestyle. Good Luck. BTW, I have a Boston Scientific, previously it was Medtronic & they were both set up in the same pacing mode.
Yep they were changing me up it seems like a lot so would have energy can't turn it up now unless they feel it's time for me to be totally dependent, my primary care brought up probably 7 yrs ago eventually i would probably have to have a heart transplant down the road , its in my file i said absolutely not!!! I'm getting older give the transplant to a person that has alot of life to live yet !!! I now have a D.N.R. PAPER AND P.O.A. PAPERS FOR MEDICAL AND MY BELONGINGS I QUESS U COULD SAY
