Devices external pulse generator: a reliable temporary pacemaker?

Two cases of malfunctioning APC (American Pacemaker Company) Devices pacemakers are reported. Two patients with sick sinus syndrome were temporarily paced using APC Devices pacemaker models EC 4542 and EV 4543 respectively, which showed transient increase (53% and 83% of the preset rate, respectively) in pacing rate. The sudden increase of the pacing rate might be the pacemaker's design to switch to fixed-rate pacing at nominally 25% higher than the selected rate in the presence of an excessive level of electrical interference. However, the increased rate was much faster than the interference rate. Great caution should be paid when APC Devices pacemaker is to be used.[1]
