This session was excellent, I now understand pacing modes much more than I did before the session. It was really explained well and in terms that were user friendly.

Very interesting and well presented. This VLA identified the need to know the clinical history of the pacemaker need and assessment for settings. This is important when a consumer is in a palliative staff and the pacemaker has to be deactivated.
