What should you avoid to reduce your risk of Arrhythmia?

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmia is any change in the heart's normal rhythm

Implantable Cardioverter Defribulators (ICD):A small device that detects when the heart is not beating normally and shocks the heart to re-establish the normal rhythm. It is very effective in preventing death in patients with several kinds of arrhythmia.

Treatments:

Abalation:Abalation is a procedure in which the small portion of the heart that is producing the extra impulses is killed in a painless way with very little risk of complications.

Artificial Pacemaker:A small battery powered device that helps the heart establish its proper rhythm. It replaces the SA node to generate the electrical pulses that cause the heart to beat

Medications:There are several types of medications avalible to treat arrhythmia. Some help to restore the heart's natural rhythm, and some are clot preventive to deal with some results of arrhythmia.
