In a Western European hospital a patient had dizziness after pacemaker implant. He had a holter test. The test revealed a long pause. It was decided to be a case of pacemaker malfunction and the box was changed. The old box was sent to company for compensation. there was no evidence of a malfunction. Holter was reanalyzed and it was found that the pause was exactly twice the length of a normal cycle. for that cycle the lead must have had a malfunction. It was fortunately amicably settled.
