Bradycardia is the medical term to describe a heart rate which is abnormally slow. Finding bradycardia treatment Cambridge is no trouble if you visit the clinic of Dr Begley.

The normal range of an adult heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. Bradycardia can become a serious problem because a slow heart rate can mean your blood is not pumped around your body properly. This can result in a range of worrying symptoms including:

  • Fainting episodes
  • Lightheaded moments and dizziness
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pains
  • Memory problems
  • Confusion
  • Unexpected or premature tiredness when exercising

However for other people, bradycardia doesn’t cause symptoms or complications at all.

Treatment for Bradycardia

Patients diagnosed with bradycardia may want to consider a treatment plan to manage the symptoms or help return the heart to a more natural rhythm. The most common and effective treatment is an implanted pacemaker. A pacemaker will correct the bradycardia and help your heart to keep a steady, normal rhythm.
