A pacemaker detects an abnormal heart rate and then it releases electrical impulses that recondition the heart to beat at a normal rate.
In cardioversion, an electric shock or medication is delivered to restore the heart to its regular rhythm.
In most cases, certain surgeries like maze procedure or coronary bypass surgery may be the recommended treatment for arrhythmia.
These maneuvers are used to decelerate the heart rate by restoring the vagus nerve.
You need to see a doctor if you are having certain chest pain symptoms or your heart is fluttering, racing or has skipped a beat. You may have to be evaluated for more heart diseases.
