Programming for exercise

Medtronic Device: PM Field: Programming for exercise

Medtronic paths associated with this specificity

63-year-old man with ischemic cardiomyopathy, EF of 54%, narrow QRS with inferior sequelae, on beta blocker therapy; implantation of an Adapta dual-chamber pacemaker for sinus bradycardia; interrogation of the pacemaker 6 months after implantation; notion of exertional dyspnea.

75-year-old woman implanted with an Adapta pacemaker for complete atrioventricular block post-aortic valve surgery; routine control 3 months after implantation; asymptomatic.

64-year-old man with complete atrioventricular block implanted with an Adapta pacemaker; grade II mitral regurgitation; routine control; asymptomatic patient.

A 28-year-old woman surgically implanted with a triple-chamber pacemaker (1 atrial lead, 2 left ventricular leads) for congenital complete atrioventricular block; programming in DDD mode (single left ventricular lead) 60-120 beats/minute; sensation of blockpnea on exertion; exercise test (bending of the legs) with the telemetry head positioned over the pulse generator; EGM tracing recorded during vigorous effort with, from one beat to the next, sensation of blockpnea (exerc

Same patient as in the preceding tracing; change in programming with a shortening of the PVARP value, programming of an adjustable AV delay; new exercise test (flexions) with attenuation of the sensation of discomfort relative to the previous tracing.
