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 tea, coffee, cola) / Fever / Infection / Pain / Stress / Thyroid
/ Vitamin D, calcium, magnesium
/ Medicines like Phenylephrine
used for ‘cold’; Salbutamol
used for asthma and so on / may be responsible.... / Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine
are notorious to cause abnormal beats / At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) or disease of the conduction system may be responsible! ECHOcardiogram
/ LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance. / You may even need Electro Physiological Studies (EPS)
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.
Wishing speedy recovery
