Pacemaker choices.

I am newly diagnosed with CI. Treadmill test confirms this. Heart rate usually hovers in the 40's. Much more frquent PVCs lately. No visible blockage from cath studies. Do I have choices in pacemakers?
Female, age 62.

Yes, there are quite a few makes and models out on the market.  Your doc will select the one that will serve your needs the best.  I am on my second pacer and on my second brand.
