Treatment of heart rate disturbance (arrhythmia)

The human heart beats for our whole life, contracting and relaxing, on the average, from 60 to 100 times per minute during long years. The healthy heart should contract through the even intervals during the whole life. All the changes in the frequency, rhythm and order of heart contractions are called as the heart rhythm disorders or just arrhythmia.

 

Why is the arrhythmia a big deal? If the heart contracts more frequently, than it should contract – it does not rest and is worn down quicker. If the heart contracts more slowly, then it cannot ensure sufficient blood flow and oxygen in the organism. In addition, some groups of arrhythmias increase the risk of occurrence of the stroke and stagnant heart failure.

SYMPTOMS OF ARRHYTHMIA

In the daily life, unless having problems with the heart, people virtually do not feel their own heart beating. They pay attention to the heart rate only in case of arrhythmia, which manifests itself through:

  • sensation of pains or discomfort in the heart area
  • increased or rapid heart rate
  • very slow heart rate
  • irregular heart work
  • shortness of breath
  • dizziness and faints.

At the early stages, the heart rhythm disorders do not manifest themselves through sensible symptoms; that is why the practical examinations by the cardiologist, allowing detecting the problem before appearance of symptoms, are needed for prescribing the effective treatment.

CAUSES OF HEART RATE DISTURBANCE

Different diseases can be the causes of heart rate disturbance, but most often it is:

  • arterial hypertension (increased pressure)
  • ischemic disease of the heart (including such manifestations, as the myocardial infarction and angina)
  • diabetes mellitus
  • stress
  • heart defects
  • heart failure
  • myocarditis
  • mitral valve prolapse
  • impact of tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, pharmaceutical or narcotic substances
  • endocrine diseases;
  • respiratory diseases;
  • too high or low content of electrolytes in the blood (potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium).

The wide range of diseases, causing the arrhythmia, requires a comprehensive examination and prescription of treatment by the experienced specialist, who can order the effective and safe therapy, taking into account the first signs, type and degree of heart rate disturbance.
