Wow. Impressed with how proactive the cardiologist is being and so glad he understands your background. Hopefully you'll get some answers soon.

I don't know why I'm still amazed at how little I know about medical possibilities. Happy that the doc is looking out for you.

He can't diagnose anything until he knows what's going on. Apparently one of the latest Apple smart watches can take very accurate EKGs and there's also a good phone app, but you have to do it as soon as you feel you're arrhythmic. And if that happens when you're out on an o-course you're out of luck unless you want to stop and take the EKG on the spot, and assuming you have your phone/watch with you. So this implantable thing is one of the most convenient ways to detect an irregularity and even if they don't occur often (with me) i should experience at least one in the next 3 years which is the life of the device!
