A cardiac arrhythmia describes an abnormal heartbeat. If you’re diagnosed with an arrhythmia, your heart beats too slowly (bradycardia), too quickly (tachycardia), or irregularly.
Causes of cardiac arrhythmia include:
Without treatment, cardiac arrhythmia can lead to stroke, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and premature death.
The Advanced Medical Care team provides comprehensive diagnostic testing in-office to identify what causes cardiac arrhythmia. They also design a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms and protect your long-term heart health.
You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Advanced Medical Care if you have any of the following symptoms of cardiac arrhythmia:
The medical team uses an electrocardiogram (EKG), a Holter monitor, and other advanced diagnostic tests to evaluate your heart’s rhythm and rate. They also review your personal and family medical histories to pinpoint the cause of your irregular heartbeat.
Based on your test results, the team creates a treatment plan to restore your heart rhythm and lower your risk of myocardial infarction, heart disease, and other complications. They focus on relieving bothersome symptoms and restoring a healthy heart rhythm.
The Advanced Medical Care team offers a range of treatments to address the root cause of your cardiac arrhythmia. Your treatment plan can include:
You could be a candidate for surgery to remove scar tissue or other blockages affecting blood flow to your heart or to implant a pacemaker. A pacemaker delivers electrical currents into your heart to reset its rhythm.
The team monitors your heart health over time and will adjust your treatment plan when necessary. You might also need preventive screenings to lower your risk of myocardial infarction and other heart conditions resulting from cardiac arrhythmia.
