All the sudden out of nowhere your heart skips, races or beats slowly
You’re going along with your life and one day at work or home, you feel uneasy. You notice a fluttering in your chest and you feel a bit weak and maybe dizzy.
You rest for a few moments but when you get up, things are not any better. You decide to go to the doctor and you find out your heart is not beating steadily – a condition called “A-fib” – a cardiac arrhythmia.
You’re hospitalized and monitored. Given blood thinners and medications to restore your normal “sinus” heart beat. Eventually, your cardiac rhythm is restored.
You’re referred to a specialist who deals in arrhythmia issues – a cardiac electrophysiologist. And you wonder if you’ll ever be able to feel safe and comfortable this won’t happen again.
The physicians at Cardiac EP can help you with skips, flutters, racing or slow heart beats.
