Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe in this report an unusual form of Wenckebach upper rate response produced by a DDD pulse generator with atrial-based lower rate timing. The pacemaker maintained the programmed upper and lower rate intervals at the expense of a prolonged atrial paced-ventricular paced AV interval. This form of upper rate behavior eliminated the longer cycle (containing the unsensed P wave) that occurs at the end of the pacemaker Wenckebach sequence during traditional DDD pacing with ventricular-based lower rate timing.
