Pacemaker


Today hubby revisited the surgical suite. He received a pacemaker to stimulate his heart to beat when his heart rate drops below 40 beats per minute. The hospital monitors captured data during Hubby’s syncope  events. The doctors learned my husband’s heart slows dangerously, bringing on a vasovagal response. It’s hoped the pacemaker will prevent his passing out in the future.
