Returned to hospital today...Cardiorespiratory-to get my interrogation of DDDR. All working OK... Will not help my SSS. But allows more medication without compromising my Bradycardia. What it did show -was Sleep Apnea. This last week, I had 3 nights of Severe Sleep Disordered Breathing -with RDI >20 over this last week. ......(Respiratory Disturbance Index)..... 15% of all sleep over the last month @ RDI >20.......Clever DDDR?
My best option now is to have an Ablation as I am in Fast A/F still .
Cardiorespiratory telephoned the A and E department for ECG and Ablation request. I was fast tracked into Majors to get Fast A/F reduced in rate.
I was admitted and given Fluid therapy ( Low BP)..... Digoxin IV..... Analgesic IV. Rate reduce to approx' 120HR after about 3 hours. Discharged home and to return Tomorrow Tuesday, to Ambulatory Dept'.
Request they chase Ablation . Should this fail ? Cardiorespiratory will chase this for me?
Seems their preferred option is Elective cardioversion.... This is a quick fix and not viable for SSS patient?
I am still in A/F and every movement ,or exertion ,sends it upwards.
Taking it very easy until tomorrow...... do not want another ambulance call.
Wish they had kept me in Hospital on Saturday... by discharging me -this has been very traumatic and a painful experience I could have done without. This has also complicated any chance of a early resolution (as a in -patient).
This time , I have collected all relevant paperwork to present to the Ambulatory Dept'...Fed up with going there and they have no knowledge of me or my records.
