Pacemaker Essentials: Oversensing

The team at Medmastery are providing LITFL readers with a series of FOAMed courses from across their website.

Over the next few weeks, we will be posting videos from the Pacemaker Essentials Course. Learn to recognize oversensing, its causes and how it is resolved (through decreasing sensitivity or the use of alternate algorithms).

I’m an International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE) certified specialist in cardiac pacemakers and ICDs, and the chief cardiac physiologist in a pacemaker clinic that carries out over 4,000 pacemaker checks per year. My passion is education, and I created THE PAD website, a popular resource for cardiology information, and wrote the book Pacemakers Made Easy.
