On Tuesday night I flipped back into AF at 02:00, after a year of remission. My ICD didn't fire as it's set to go off at 222 BPM and my AF only reached 192 BPM.
Once in the Hospital (06:00) I was bounced around departments until finally I was left at the Cardiac Resuscitation Unit where my ICD was manually activated and I was brought back in to syscn.
The lessons I learned from this are...
Call an ambulance straight away.
If you have an ICD, insist you are knocked out before they activate the ICD - they did pumped drugs into me but they had no effect.
The whack you get from the ICD does make your eyes water and you should ne have to do that whilst awake.
I'm now back home and feeling ok . I will be making a few calls today to ensure there is a better solution available next time!
