She has a second degree block..at this point the escape rhythm ( delayed ) is supporting her..but the fear is that she would need emergency surgery and not have anesthesiology support available..she would require transcutaneous pacing and the likelihood of that being available are problematic...so better to go with the internal pacer and eliminate this scenario...her resting rate is 20 - 30 BPM with abrupt pauses of 7 plus seconds..
