Re: OT: who, what, when, where

My understanding is that members of the Zapper group decided that they wanted something better so they started this one. Send a PM to ~guin as she has been on here since very early if not the beginning and can help. The other groups have dissolved as far as I know. This is the only social site I hav...

Re: post by Shelby from 2005

The quick links just above where this post is has several links. I use "active topics" the most as they are pretty new. If you want to post a new topic going to "main forum 2018" is where you can add the new one. You can search all the way back to the beginning for old topics. If you research a name...

Re: Viscious Cycle

I do understand your frustrations. I am lucky as my diuretics work mostly in the daytime. I do make one or two night stops. As far as the EF, all I can say is they gave me all kings of grief when they tried to run tests as mine was at 15%. The cardiologist office tried to not push the number but the...

Re: post by Shelby from 2005

When we post something like this it would help to know what the poster was responding to. Robo is correct she has not been active for several years and had made many posts.

Welcome Crapula (John)

Hi All, I'm John, I'm a UK national but I am in Australia on a 4 month business trip (or at least I was). On the 27th January 2018, I was learning scuba diving and about 2 hours into the first pool session when I suffered a cardiac arrest. Quick action by the trainers meant that I dragged out of th...

Re: Hacking our Devices - Another Scare ?

So tell me what is really new "NEWS". I have far more fears about failure of leads and ICD's from other issues than to worry about hacking. It seems like some "reporter" needed to do the story again and try to get recognized by his pears.

Lets not spend long on this one.

Sorry, not dead.

My chiropractor has used it on me several times, as recently as last month. No ill effects yet.
I think the optimum word is YET. I personally don't have an issue with a chiropractor but they usually are not experts on ICD's nor heart issues. Just saying.

Re: Plant-based diet

I did see a nutritionist when I first started Cardiac rehab. I has some issues as everything she suggested was what I did not like. I have not heard of this one so I looked it up. It appears that some cardiologist like it while some do not. If you have confidence in your cardiologists I would discus...

Re: Welcome PFARGO (Patty)

They could not find any reason for cardiac arrest and are looking into possible genetic heart disease. Funny thing is I have no knowledge if family with heart disease. I just want to be able to return to my life without thinking I am living on borrowed time and wondering if I fall asleep will I jus...

Re: Question about first ATP

I believe the only persons to really answer is your cardiologist's tech person (the one doing interrogations) or your device rep. Every interrogation I get usually shows a few "un sustained" quick beats and a time. I've never been able to correlate those times to any fixed time to know. Like I got ...

Re: Question about first ATP

Our ICD do not know what daylight savings time is so if your implant was in the summer it may be off 1 hour in the winter. Mine was that way. I had a February implant so it was noted in standard time all year long. The time of the event should have been noted in your download report, as well as the ...
