What is Bradycardia?
A healthy adult heart typically beats between 60 and 100 times per minute. However, when your heart rate falls below this range, it can lead to health problems, as your blood circulation may become compromised. Bradycardia is the medical term for when your heart beat falls and it can lead to the following symptoms:
- Fainting Episodes
- Light-headedness and Dizziness
- Unexplained Fatigue
- Shortness of Breath
- Chest Pains
- Memory Issues
- Unexpected Fatigue during Exercise
Some people with bradycardia experience no symptoms and can live healthily with no problems.
Treatment Options for Bradycardia
Patients diagnosed with bradycardia can consider a range of treatment strategies to alleviate their symptoms and restore a natural heart rhythm. The primary and most effective treatment method is the use of a pacemaker. A pacemaker efficiently addresses bradycardia, ensuring a consistent and healthy heart rhythm.
A pacemaker is a small electronic device which is implanted just under the skin below the collar bone. They are attached to wires which are inserted via a vein to the heart and help manage your heartbeat and stop it from beating too slowly.
