Bradycardia is an arrhythmic disease of the heart, in which heartbeat rate is lower than normal. In an adult at rest, the normal rate is 60-72 times per minute. But if you are suffering from Bradycardia, your heartbeat rate will be lesser than 60 times per minute. For some people such as healthy youngsters and trained athletes, this may seem normal and does not cause complications.
For others, this could turn into serious trouble, as your heart will not pump the necessary quantity of oxygen-rich blood to your body.
Bradycardia usually starts with problems in the sinus node. In some, the sinus node might create another complication called bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome, with alternating slow and fast rates. Your heartbeat rate might be because your sinus node might discharge electrical impulses at a lesser rate, pause or fail to discharge at a normal rate and discharge an impulse that gets blocked before reaching the atrium.

At Medanta, Bradycardia could be diagnosed using standard tests like measuring the pulse or an electrocardiogram. But often Bradycardia comes and goes. Sometimes, normal tests might not be able to detect Bradycardia unless it happens during the test. Therefore, your doctor might prescribe using an ambulatory electrocardiogram. Also called Holter monitor, this device is light in weight and portable. It will record the activities of your heart as you go about your daily chores.
Treatment of Bradycardia at Medanta would, of course, depend on the root cause and symptoms of the problem. Generally, Bradycardia is not treated if symptoms are not displayed...
Treatment of Bradycardia at Medanta would, of course, depend on the root cause and symptoms of the problem. Generally, Bradycardia is not treated if symptoms are not displayed.
If the cause of Bradycardia is improper electrical signals, your doctor might implant a tiny device called pacemaker. This device will control your heartbeat rate and whenever it is low, it will release impulses and control the heart.
If the cause is hypothyroidism or electrolytic imbalance, treating it with appropriate medication would cure Bradycardia.
If taking other medicines is the cause of Bradycardia in you, your doctor might prescribe different medicines or adjust dosages. In unavoidable circumstances, a pacemaker may be inevitable.
If you faint, have chest pain for more than a few minutes or have difficulty in breathing, you need immediate medical attention.
