Welcome to Health Care Magic
THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST
Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia
occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly or precipitated by a specific activity like exercise, one needs Holter or event monitor...
Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much coffee, cola) / Medicines like Phenylephrine
used for ‘cold’; Salbutamol
used for asthma and so on are common causes...
Fever / Thyroid / Vitamin D, calcium and magnesium may all have a role...
Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine
are notorious to cause abnormal beats
At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) are responsible!
/ TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.
Wishing speedy recovery
