In brief: Pacemaker

One solution for hard to treat atrial tachycardia may involve the use of a pacemaker; however, this is usually reserved for older people who can not tolerate other treatments, or they are ineffective.
Medications can be tried. Catheter ablation is often a successful cure. Request a cardiac electrophysiology referral, to discuss options.
