“Palpitations, uncomfortable feeling of heartbeat, dizziness or giddiness are some prime symptoms of arrhythmias,” says Dr. Ajay Naik in an interview with Dr. Rishi Jain.“It can be detected with Holter, a walkman like machine attached on to the chest, recording the rhythm for 24 to 48 hours. External loop recorder, a patch which can be put on the chest records the rhythm for about a week. In patients who experience less frequent symptoms, we put an implantable loop recorder below the skin.” “For Cases in which recording arrhythmia is not possible, an electrophysiology study is done. Catheters are inserted through the groin into the heart to record electrical signals.”“Arrhythmia can be life-threatening in patients who have already suffered heart disease, myocardial infarction, dilated cardiomyopathy, WPW syndrome or have a low LV function.” “Patients suffering from frequent episodes of arrhythmias can be treated with medications or a curative radiofrequency ablation,” Dr. Ajay Naik talks about treatment of arrhythmia.”“While beta blockers are benign and safe, the classic antiarrhythmic drugs like amiodarone and sotalol are double edged swords. They are good and effective, but can cause problems in the lungs, liver, skin and thyroid.”
