Default Little nervous....

I think I'm in a general state of panic. Going to the doctor in a few hours to talk about the Defib unit he wants to put in. My heart is pumping at 30 percent, so his recommendation is to install one and stay away from large magnets, arc wielding and airport metal detectors.


Hmmm..... I need cofee.... talk to you guys later.

Hope everything works out well, man. P.S. Why would a defib help if its pumping at 30%? Don't you really need a stint or valve replacement or something?

It might be an under-active electrical system as opposed to clogged arteries. The defib could be used to regulate the pulse.

He probably means a pacemaker/defibulator. The term has become pretty interchangable anymore. Pacemakers set the rate. Defibs kick your heart in the @55 when it starts doing stupid sh1t, and alot of units are both in 1 case.

Dont worry man you'll do fine. I know in the short term it's scary but at far as heart surgery goes putting one of them things in is like putting in a door bell and shouldnt mess you up at all. Biggest thing it will do, besides helping you out, is give me fits when I try to run a EKG on ya if you dont tell me its there.
Your EKG will show a nice little spike telling me if it's actually pacing you at the time of the EKG and basicly making your EKG useless to me, but then again I'm only a paramedic. On the plus side I can guarentee that if ya ever call 911 to go to the hospital you'll always get a paramidc rig instead of a basic life support rig . . . and we have MORPHINE
