Hi all,

I was wondering how one would input the following condition into GNUmed.

Patient suffers from AV-Block III° and receives a dual chamber pacemaker.
Health issue/Grunderkrankung would be AV-Block III° I assume. Pacemaker 
implant procedure would be what in that context ?

If patient comes in for a pacemaker checkup and I want to write a soap note I 
would select av-block as health issue. What am I supposed to put in to reflect 
that the reason for encounter was a pacemaker checkup (not a problem in that 

What if the patient suffers from device associated infection. Is this a 
seperate health issue or is the issue AV-Block III° and the active problem the 
device associated infection ?

Any clues are appreciated
