Sensing in pacemakers (PMs) and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) is crucial to normal device behaviour. Since both devices treat different arrhythmias, the technical approach to signal detection is also completely different. A PM has a fixed threshold of sensing, above which events are sensed and therapy of the device withheld. On the other hand, the defibrillator has a variable threshold of sensing to detect tachyarrhythmias, with sometimes very small and changing electrogram amplitudes. In this case report, we describe interference between a PM and an ICD caused by these differences in the detection of cardiac events, leading to undersensing of ventricular fibrillation at defibrillation threshold testing.
