can you live long with bradycardia

A 34-year-old member asked:

A long time: Bradycardia is not related to survival unless there is a severe bradycardia related to heart block. Bradycardia can be a normal finding.
Dr. William Scott
38 years experience Pediatric Cardiology
It depends: Mildly decreased heart rates have no effect on longevity. Severe bradycardia can be immediately life threatening.

Bradycardia: Just means heart rate lower than 60bpm. This does not affect longevity.
