I have sinus bradycardia. Dr is recommending pacemaker are there any other alternatives that can be consider?

Healthy, conditioned athletes may have sinus bradycardia while sleeping, sometimes as low as a hr in the 30s! but one key distinction is that the hr increases with exercise. If you have no symptoms, have a normal hr response to exercise, and heart function is nml -- pacer is probably unnecessary. ...Read more

What is sinus bradycardia?

What is sinus bradycardia?

Slow heart rate: Generally a heart rate less than 50 beats per minute coming from the heart's natural pacemaker is considered sinus bradycardia. It is not necessarily abnormal as well conditioned athletes often have low heart rates. Some medications such as beta blockers slow the heart rate to this level. ...Read more

Can you define sinus bradycardia?

Can you define sinus bradycardia?

Yes: A slow heart rate in which the electrical signal for each heartbeat originates from the sinus node (where it's supposed to originate). Generally, in an adult, this means a heart rate of less than 60. But keep in mind you can have a heart rate less than 60 and still be okay. For example many good athletes, whose hearts are in great shape, have resting heart rates less than 60. ...Read more

What causes of sinus bradycardia?

What causes of sinus bradycardia?

Normal or abnormal: Could be normal if physically fit as in athletes due to high parasympathetic tone. Abnormal sinus bradycardia could be due to degeneration of the cells in the sinus node, certain medications such as beta blockers, Diltiazem or verapamil and sinus node ischemia (insufficient blood flow). ...Read more

What is sinus bradycardia and PRWP?

What is sinus bradycardia and PRWP?

ECG findings: "Sinus bradycardia" means the HR is slower than expected but otherwise normal by ECG findings. "PRWP" stands for "poor R wave progression" - it's an ECG finding that is relatively non-specific but requires interpretation with respect to your cardiac risk factors otherwise. If you are at elevated cardiac risk, then further testing would be recommended, such as stress testing or angiogram. ...Read more

What are the most common effects of sinus bradycardia?

What are the most common effects of sinus bradycardia?

Usually nothing: Sinus bradycardia is usually a normal rhythm that occurs during sleep or in a highly conditioned athlete. As long as the rhythm is originating from the sinus node, the individual is usually asymptomatic. Slow heart rates associated with abnormal rhythms (such as third degree heart block) may not be tolerated and may be dangerous. Sinus bradycardia can also be a sign of other non-cardiac problems. ...Read more

I have sinus bradycardia at rest of 48-60. Am I at risk of developing Long Qt or Long Qt if I take certain drugs?

QT interval is heart: Rate dependent. QTc corrects for this to some extent. Many drugs can cause QT prolongation but usually in individuals with a genetic predisposition. Is there a family history of sudden death? Other members with QT prolongation? These would increase your risk. If not, your risk is relatively low like the general population regardless of your minimal bradycardia. Discuss your concerns with your MD. ...Read more

Is there a difference between bradycardia and sinus bradycardia?

Is there a difference between bradycardia and sinus bradycardia?

Mechanisms vary: Bradycardia simply means slow heart beat. Sinus bradycardia refers to a specific cause for the slow heart beat which is sluggishness of the natural pacemaker cells of the heart (referred to as sinus node). This could be normal in physically fit people or abnormal especially if associated with symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath or passing out spells. ...Read more
