Pacemaker

My father did go through ECG and echocardiogram tests recently. He did not have a symptom of any heart disease and those tests were part of his regular check up. Some problems were found in the test reports and our family doctor said he will need a pacemaker. I thought to send you the scanned copy of the reports for your opinion on this. Thank you very much.


Re: Pacemaker

Please send the reports of ECG and Echo for evaluation by our cardiologists.

Consultation

May i also consult you on something?

I have a 79f patient with symptomatic sinus node dysfunction. her longest pause on holter was 2.68seconds. average hr of 50. Lowest was 42/min. She will be undergoing hemicolectomy for colon cancer and still hesitant to undergo pacemaker insertion: would you suggest that we insert a tpi prior to the surgery? since transcutaneous pacemaker may not capture during the surgery? would it be better to insert the permanent pacemaker after the colon surgery to prevent lead infection?

thank u v much for your advice.


Re: Consultation

If ecg or holter ecg did not show significant pause or relevant av block and patient did not have a syncope, i would go ahead with surgery.
I would also not suggest  transvenous temporary pacing.
Permanent pacemaker implantation can be done after surgery.

Re: Consultation

Thank you very much for your recommendation. We had her undergo myocardial perfusion imaging to rule out inducible ischemia for risk stratification prior to the colon surgery.


Consultation

I would like to have an online consult. I've been having issues with my heart lately and I can't afford to go to see a doctor. My heart rate has been very high (175 bpm) for the past 4 days and it hasn't stopped. I've also had sharp chest pain on the left side of my chest, dizziness, and a high fever of 105. I'm just wondering what this could be, and what I should do.


Re:

If heart rate and fever are that high, please immediately seek medical help!!
