Do You Treat Vagal Afib Differently
Atrial fibrillation is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that commonly causes poor blood flow to the body.

Cardiologist says no heart disease or restrictions, but I have vagal afib. Wants to switch my Flecanide to Dysopyramide. What is your opinion? Thanks
Afib: There are various antiarrythmics for the treatment of afib and dysopramide is one of them and these medications may be used to prevent, stop or lower the ventricular response to afib. Anticoagulants May also be prescribed except in very low risk patients. I recommend that you follow your cardiologist's advice as he/she knows all your findings. ...Read more

If this management fails then an EP study may be done to find the Afib origin and remove this origin site. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
