Re: Some input/heart question(s)
Sorry to be slow answering, but I just ran across your post.
How slow is your slow heart rate? Brachycardia is normally considered anything below 60 bpm, but I have had my heart rate go as low as 30 bpm, and it normally runs about 46 bpm. I'm on a potent beta blocker to stop bouts of atrial fibrillation, but my slow heart rate doesn't seem to bother me much.
Maybe my body is just accustomed to a slow rate. But I have an ejection fraction of 35% stemming from a severe heart attack many years ago. It appears a low ejection fraction and a slow heart rate would produce a bunch of symptoms like syncope or dizziness, but it doesn't.
My general opinion of 30 day event monitors is that since you must take action to record the event, sometimes the event is past and gone by the time I think to hit the button. I've only worn one one time, and didn't catch anything significant, although PAC's and PVC's usually show up on a simple EKG.
Hope this helps a little.
