The relationship between the pacemaker sensitivity safety factor (PSSF) and atrial under- or oversensing as documented by 24-hour Holter monitoring was examined. Our study comprised 78 transvenous fixed atrial leads implanted between 1983-1995 in 71 children. Overall, 210 Holter reports identified 143 (68%) Holters with normal atrial sensing function, 31 (15%) with undersensing, 32 (15%) with oversensing, and 4 (2%) with both problems. From 161 Holter reports in which the PSSF was available… CONTINUE READING
