Event Description

It was initially reported that a pt was having episodes of bradycardia with a heart rate in the 30s and was also experiencing a few episodes of asystole (each about 5 seconds in duration). The cardiologist thought it may possibly be related to the pt's vns device. A company rep went to the pt's next appt and was unable to interrogate the pt's device due to believed end of service. A battery life calculation was performed using the pt's programming history available in the in-house database (current from date of implant to (b) (6) 2009) and it was found that the device may be at end of service. Good faith attempts to obtain add'l info have been unsuccessful to date.
