When he was 20 however, he suddenly collapsed, and the ambulance said his heart rate was 20 something, and they thought he was going. They put in the pacemaker
and now he just recently had a new battery
put in--his leads were still good (10 years later). He was told he only needed the pacemaker due to having 3 issues, (one was a hole in his heart). Anyway--whats odd though is everything I read says 2nd degree usually and 3rd degree always requires a pacemaker.
