Depends: It depends on the type of dysrhythmia and the rate. For example, atrial fibrillation with a heart rate in the 70-80s may cause no symptoms at all. A rate in the 150's may decrease blood pressure because there is not adequate time for the heart to fill between beats. A heart rate lower than 30 may cause a low blood pressure because the slow rate. Symptoms often relate to total cardiac output. ...Read more

Highly effective: It "sets the clock back to zero" so to speak. It synchronizes all the electrically conducting cells in the heart to begin their cycle at the same instant. It interrupts and stops abnormal rhythms. It doesn't hurt and there are generally no side effects so in that regard, it's better than medicines. The downside is that one must be put to sleep, albeit briefly, for it. ...Read more

I'm on Bisoprosal Fumurate for paroxysmal AF. In rhythm my resting heart is often around 50. Is this ok?

I'm on Bisoprosal Fumurate for paroxysmal AF. In rhythm my resting heart is often around 50. Is this ok?

See your doctor soon: Your bisoorolol was prescribed partly for "rate control"; that is, to keep your AF heart from beating too fast to effectively drive the blood circulation. A rate of 50 is low because it's less than 60 & risks making the heart beat too slow to effectively drive the blood circulation. If you are fatigued or light headed, then you need attention ASAP. But see your doctor soon. Hope that helps. ...Read more
