Hi, great video, but what is your take on application of magnets in patients who do not know if they have a PPM or an ICD and/or what model? For example, some older models Guidant/Boston Scientific ICDs are equipped with circuitry that enables the magnet to permanently programme the anti-tachycardia therapy to ‘OFF’.
great little video and reminder of what to do with PPMs and ICDs, also very funny (-: nice to see a less deadly serious approach….
How about the patient having intrinsic native rate higher than that of paced rate , by placing the magnet won’t it lead to dangerous VT or VF ?
