Welcome to Health Care Magic
Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG).
THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE YOUR CARDIOLOGIST AGAIN
EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram
/ 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.
The dose of Metoprolol
may have to be stepped up.
If they are not effective and if the problem is severe, several other classes of drugs are available – acting by different mechanisms - the specialist will decide tailored to your needs / they may have side effects and need follow up.
There are other advanced modalities of investigation and treatment - like EPS and ablation for selected cases...
Wishing speedy recovery
