Heart Arrhythmias - Causes, Complications, Symptoms, Information
Many people have occasional, irregular heartbeats that may feel like a skipped, fluttering or racing heart — called arrhythmias. Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart rhythm abnormality in the United States
These heart rhythm problems occur when the electrical impulses in your heart which coordinate your heartbeats don't function properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.
While most arrhythmias are common and usually harmless, some heart arrhythmias may cause bothersome — sometimes even life-threatening — signs and symptoms.
Arrhythmias are often made worse — or are even caused — by a weak or damaged heart, so the good news is that you may be able to reduce your arrhythmia risk by adopting a heart-healthy lifestyle. Additionally, advances in medical technology have added new treatment methods to the procedures that doctors may use to try to control or eliminate arrhythmias.
Heart Arrhythmias - Treatment Options
Treatment options for Heart Arrhythmias will vary patient by patient, depending on what is causing the condition - your symptoms, the causes, possible complications. Obtaining information on Heart Arrhythmias is your first step. Among treatment options and diagnostic tests are Electrophysiology, Ablation, and Ejection Fraction.
