Cardiac arrhythmia is a disorder in which the heart beats in an irregular, sometimes uncoordinated manner. It can also beat too slowly (bradycardia), or too fast (tachycardia). Arrhythmia (or irregular heartbeats) can result from a problem with the heart’s electrical system. Moreover, it can be a temporary problem or it can be a serious, chronic condition.
In this article, the best cardiologist in Delhi explains everything you need to know about arrhythmia.
Listed below are the main symptoms of arrhythmia:
If you notice any of these arrhythmia symptoms, call a doctor immediately.
When a person has a cardiac arrhythmia, the treatment can vary depending on the underlying cause of the irregular heartbeats. Doctors may prescribe medications such as beta blockers to correct the problem. Of course, you must never self-medicate under any circumstances.
If needed, certain surgical treatment methods may be used to deal with arrhythmias including catheter ablation, pacemaker, or cardioverter defibrillator. This is the specialty of an electrophysiologist like Dr. Vanita.
In catheter ablation, a catheter (thin, flexible tube) is used to destroy the heart tissue that is causing the arrhythmia. On the other hand, a cardioverter defibrillator is a device that is used to stop a dangerous heart rhythm that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest. It is implanted surgically into the patient’s chest.
