I’ve only ever had a biventricular defibrillator and pacemaker combo and it seems to be working very well! My EF is up to 58% and The Device has not shocked me but once! It Was a Doozy but it’s a lot better than the alternative and I know that should I go in to Cardiac Arrest my Pacemaker will keep my heart pumping until I can get Help!

I was in and out of Atrial Fib and finally I can breathe easily and since it is a biventricular defibrillator and pacemaker I no longer have to fear dropping dead while alone! My Ejection Fraction has gone up from 30 to 58 and I feel alive again! I’m so happy that I got this device that I don’t have the words for it. Go and do it ASAP! I feel alive again!!!❤️❤️❤️😍

I had atrial fibrillation and had 2 atrial ablations and a Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Pacemaker. It was like startng a new chapter of my life. No more swollen ankles! No more Short of Breath. More energy. My pacemaker is a bit different that most and has helped my congestive heart failure.

It is a welcome mystery…In hospital Christmas of 2021 it was 10-15%…then after several months on Entresto and some other med changes it went up to 30% then 2 months after the ICD implant it was up to 58% My Doc said it was nothing short of miraculous! Give the implant some time!!!❤️❤️❤️

I am on my second one. They updated me to a biventricular pacemaker. The operation is a piece of cake. My first one I spent the night in the hospital. The second one was out patient. Stopped at Red Lobster on the way home
