Heart arrhythmia treatment
Some arrhythmias may cause few, if any, problems. In this case, you may not need treatment; however, when the abnormal heart rhythm causes symptoms, your Baylor Scott & White Health team will give you options for arrhythmia treatment. Baylor Scott & White has electrophysiologists on the medical staff who specialize in heart rate and rhythm problems.
Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of abnormal heart rhythms and personal preferences. Heart arrhythmia treatment options may include:
- Physical therapy
- Lifestyle changes
- Implantable cardioverter defibrillator
- Pain management
- Clinical trials (when appropriate)
