Some people have mild arrhythmias and can live healthy lives without treatment. There are also people with serious arrhythmias who can live healthy lives after treatment.
Living with arrhythmia is different depending on several factors:
- The kind of arrhythmia. Supraventricular tachycardia is less dangerous than ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation
- The general pumping ability of the heart (ejection fraction)
- The presence of heart disease and how well it can be treated
If diagnosed with an arrhythmia, one should:
- Go to all medical appointments with a list of current medications they are taking.
- Take medication as it is prescribed as well as check with a doctor before taking anything over-the-counter.
- Tell the doctor if symptoms are getting worse or new symptoms have appeared.
- Let the doctor know if side effects from the medication are being experienced.
- If taking blood thinning medications, go to the doctor for regular checkups
- Lie down if feeling dizzy, faint, or lightheaded. Do not try to drive or walk.
- Ask a doctor about vagal maneuvers
- Learn how to take one's own pulse.
- Live a healthy lifestyle
