Bout of atrial fib brought on by asthma attack. Should one stay on medicines to prevent further attack?
My sister in law recently had a bout of atrial fibrulation brought on by an asthma attack/coughing. Pulse was 190-210 and it took four rounds of meds to bring her pulse rate back within a normal range. I ve heard that no matter what caused the A-Fib, she will have to stay on meds to prevent further attacks. Is this true? Cardiologist told her it probably wouldn t happen again.
