He also insisted that I immediately be transported to the hospital for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span>, that day - before the evening. Once or twice a month, I do feel a bit lightheaded but usually after just standing up quickly, No other symptoms than that. here is what the Dr. noted on my chart "1st deg Blk w/episodes of 2nd deg and 5 Multifocal VE beats & SV beats. Included in the SV Beats were 8 couplets. There were 64 episodes of Bradycardia & 1,763 pauses. Longest pause @ 6.3 secs.
I don't understand why your father doesn't want to replace the battery, I suppose a quality of life decision. The battery life expectancy is probably + or - a couple of months if it is designed to run for years.. I assume that is the case. How the Pacemaker stopping would affect your father depends on what his dependence is. If it is there just as a safegaurd against, then it becoming nonfunctional would not have any effect until the need next arrises. That's my guress.
She is currently on Metoprolol (Lopresser) 50 mg BID (recently changed due to simular symptoms from another simular cardiac med). Prior to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span> placement the only symptom she had was tiredness with a heat rate of 30 (amazingly no SOB or dizziness, but did see her physcian for right shoulder pain); this is when it was discovered that she had a heartrate in the 30's. She was then sent to the hopspital and Pacemaker was placed in the next day.
Hi, I have sick sinus syndrome and I have had my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span> since 2003. It is very close to time to replace the battery but I am having serious issues with the Dr's in my area. During the summer I was told I needed a new battery within the year. My question is....What symptoms might I experience when my pm battery actually dies? I don't think I will be able to find a Dr in time and want to know what I might have to endure. I am only 48 but don't feel I will make it to 50 because of my issue.
UPON A RECENT ECHO AND EKG, I WAS TOLD THAT THE RIGHT SIDE of MY HEART IS ENLARGED, ALSO SHOW <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> of VALVULAR DISEASE. THEY ARE SAYIING THAT 3 of THE 4 VALVES ARE SHOWING Signs of DISEASE.( DEFECTIVE). I ALSO HAVE M.V.P., AND A HEART MURMUR. I ALSO HAVE COMPLETE BLOCKAGE, IN THE UPPER CHAMBER. I WAS LED TO BELIEVE THAT I NEED SURGERY TO CORRECT THE WHOLE TO STOP THE RIGHT SIDE of MY HEART FROM GETTING ANY LARGER.
If you are passing out immediately then it most likely is the electrical system affecting your heart. You may need a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span>. A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span> is nothing to be afraid of and is like a security net in which it will work when the heart does not. Most people with a Pacemaker feel that it is normal (easy to get used to having). Google electrical system of the heart to read up on it.
Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
She had been on a medication for migrane headaches called amitriptyline for about 6 months. It was discontinued, but she is still symptomatic. She began with flu like symptoms, primarily fever and cough. Her cough never went away. The General practiononer said she was in CHF after some tests and she was put on Lanoxin and something to dry the lungs up. She was later upgraded to mitral valve insuffeiciency.
Would that be an appropriate drug to ask his primary care physician? What <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span>/symptoms of end stage CHF should we be aware of? My father is alone at home during the day with my sister away at work. He is out of hospital now, feeling somewhat better than when he went in, however, has been readmitted because he was feeling weak, not eating, related to possible abscessed tooth. Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, For diagnosing heart Failure, we initially need to know the Signs & symptoms of heart Failure. If the patient has got dyspnea (difficulty in breathing), cough, nocturia (passing urine at night), generalized fatigue, then heart Failure should be thought of. Patients who have long standing hypertension or have had a history of heart attack/undergone bypass surgery are more prone to heart Failure compared to the general population.
Some people, however, will develop right heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> and symptoms of right heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span> may include bloating, water gain, abdominal tenderness, and fatigue. Determing which camp you will fall into is difficult to predict. Hopefully in the future we will have better tools to help us make this assessment. I would recommend that you establish a follow-up plan with your cardiologist, perhaps every 3 to 6 months at the beginning.

Wishing to get some outside input on a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span> situation. I am trying to find out if the right ventricular lead can be removed from the apex and relocated at the right ventricular outlet tract (RVOT)? Based on the studies I have read, this location does not lead to intra-ventricular dys-synchrony. I wish to have the lead relocated is because of the possible development of Pacemaker mediated cardiomyopathy or dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).
Recently,Due to overstimulation of phrenic nerve they turned off lead to Left ventricle. Now EF down to 31% and continuing symptoms of heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span>. My vital <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> are all normal. My cardiologist/EP will not consider going back in to adjust/move Pacemaker or leads. My question is where do I go from here? What can be done now? Is the Pacemaker/Defibrillator doing me any good now with the Left Ventricular Lead turned off?
My doctor heard a heart murmur during a routine check up, ordered an echo and found a moderate to severe tricuspid regurgitation, a slightly enlarged right ventricle, a mildly enlarged right atrium, right ventricular systolic pressure of 46, no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> of left side heart problems. No blood clots in lungs. No autoimmune disease. No lung disease. No hx of phen-fen. I do have a Medtronic Enpulse Pacemaker since 2005 for a diagnosis of sick sinus. This is my 3rd Pacemaker.
He checked me vaguely and had me wear a halter overnite I have stable heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span>. He said that during the test I suffered a type 2 AV Heart Block and wanted to change all my medicines. He did no other tests. I contacted a superior clinic and they did a photo-chem stress test, echo and full EKG - THis doctor said he saw no Signs of any heart blocks - that my CHF was fine - EF of 44.
Rhythm control is certainly beneficial, particularly for patients who develop worsening symptoms or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> of heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span> when in Afib. The reason for this is that the atrium provides an extra ‘kick’ during the cardiac cycle that improves filling of the left sided pumping chamber (ventricle). Loss of atrial kick along with a rapid heart rate is thought to contribute to heart Failure. For this reason patients with new onset atrial fibrillation will be cardioverted.
Other than that, the most likely cause of your shortness of breath would be some type of heart disease including disorders of heart rhythm (not responsive to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span>) or heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span>. The following should also be kept in mind: Patients with most forms of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome EDS are prone to develop mitral valve prolapse, and progression to mitral regurgitation occurs more often than in the common form of mitral valve prolapse.
I was stabilized with methylphenidate (which is actually very sedating for me despite the fact that I don't have ADD or any symptoms of it) and florinef. For approximately 10 months my pulse came down to the 100-140 range which was very tolerable for me. Then in october I required a 6 week hospitalization at Beth Isreal Hospital due to another run of pulses sustained even during sleep between 130 and 200.
The goals of treatment include management of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> and symptoms, reduction of risk of complications and prevention of worsening condition. Dilated cardiomyopathy is manged with medications, surgically implanted devices, or a combination of both. For the treatment for restrictive cardiomyopathy, medications on improving symptoms are prescribed such as in lowering blood pressure and controling fast or irregular heart rhythms.
to manage your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> and symptoms, prevent your condition from worsening, and reduce your risk of complications. Treatment varies by which of the major types of cardiomyopathy you have. This includes medications, surgically implanted devices or, in severe cases, a heart transplant. Take care and keep us posted.
My 7th hospital stay in 8 months (yes 7) was for a VT ablation which went well. I show no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Signs</span> of Heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span> - which is good. I am 51 years old. I would like more information about CM and how it is treated. I know the meds reduce the workload on the heart but wondered does the enlargement ever get better? Can CM be reversible or am I looking at a progressive disease of heart Failure, Biventricular Pacemaker and a heart transplant?
As some of you may know, I've been having chest pain, palpitations, fast heartbeat, as well as many other multisystem symptoms since November 2006. I finally found out, after seeing at least 10 doctors, that I tested positive for Lyme Disease. I just recently had an Echo done, where my Cardiologist first said there may be something wrong with the way my heart functions, and then left the room, and came back saying that the Radiologist said that it was an artifcat.
This can cause lots of PACs (if it happens to be in the upper chambers) or PVCs (if it happens to be in the lower chambers) but no Signs of heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Failure</span>. There are a lot of variants. Some are benign. Some are not. Some symptoms of myocarditis (that can also be caused by other things, incl. anxiety, poor exercise condition, etc): - PVCs that increase with exercise. In theory, PACs too, but PACs are more normal during exercise and will happen anyway if adrenaline levels are too high.
During that time I had persistent Atrial Fib Flutter that required 10 cardioversions, an attempted atrial flutter ablation that failed and did have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span> for sick sinus syndrome. After the second surgery, I did well for about two months and then developed Signs of CHF which grew worse over three months. On ECHO, I had an EF of 30%. I then had an AV node ablation and was Pacemaker dependent. After a few more months I did get a bi-ventricular Pacemaker and a ICD.
She had had a complecated year of diagnostic dilemma. My mother had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pacemaker</span> since the age of 51 for sick-sinus syndrome. In 1999 She had AV Node Abalation for constant botus of Atrial Fib and heart Failure. When she had the Av Ab done she was very ill and when she came out of it she had a constant numbness in her left hand that never passed. They said not to worry about it.
