Is arithmetic heart beat in fetus curable ?

Hi, i am 22 weeks pregnant and my doctor told me that my baby might have an arithmetic heart beat. i am very scared and they are sending me to have further testing done to make sure. If they find out he has that problem will they be able to fix the problem by giving me medicine or something?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Arrhythmic heart beat means irregular heart beat. It can be caused sometimes when there is distress to the foetus. Get the NST and other tests to see if any problem is there. Have you had previous history of early pregnancy, meconium aspiration etc. In case the foetus is showing distress, early delivery by C-Section may be warranted.
