In brief: Several options

Arrhythmias can be divided into tachycardias (too fast) and bradycardias (too slow).
Rhythm problems can be treated with medications or ablation procedures. Sometimes, pacemakers or defibrillators are used to treat arrhythmias. Lifestyle changes or certain maneuvers can also help manage rhythm problems. Other approaches involve lowering your risk of complications such as stroke.
