My friend had pacemaker placed a year ago. Recently during cataract surgery blood pressure spiked. Saw his cardiac doctor a few days later and blood pressure was still high. Doctor wanted him to go to hospital right away but chose to have my friend monitor B/P at home. Doctor said when one has a pacemaker the concern about B/P is greater. Can anyone exlain this to me? Thank you. Anne
