Bradycardia - Treatments

Treatment for bradycardia depends on the cause of slow heart rate, severity of symptoms and the type of electrical conduction problem.

If an underlying disorder is causing the slow heart rate, treatment of the disorder may correct bradycardia.

Certain medications can cause bradycardia. Lowering dosages or changing your medication improve the heart rate. Your doctor will check your medication consumptions and may recommend alternative treatments.

If alternative treatments are not working or not possible, a pacemaker is necessary. A pacemaker is a battery-operated device which is used to generate and deliver impulse to the heart to prevent a pause or bradycardia.
