If your doctor has told you that you have sinus bradycardia, you may wonder what that means. This article will discuss the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of sinus bradycardia ECG.
Sinus Bradycardia ECG is a heart condition characterized by an abnormally slow heart rate. The usual range of sinus bradycardia is between 60 and 100 beats per minute (BPM). When it drops below this, it can be considered abnormal. Sinus Bradycardia ECG can be caused by certain medications, medical conditions, or even an underlying heart condition.
To diagnose sinus bradycardia, your doctor will conduct a physical exam and take your medical history. They may also order tests such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) or echocardiography (echo). An ECG records electrical activity in the heart by detecting the heartbeat and is used to detect sinus bradycardia. An echo uses sound waves to create images of the heart chambers, valves, and other structures.
Treatment for sinus bradycardia depends on its cause. If a medication causes it, adjusting or discontinuing that medication can help. If sinus bradycardia stems from an underlying medical condition such as hypothyroidism or sick sinus syndrome, treating that condition may correct the sinus bradycardia. In some cases, medications or pacemakers help regulate the heart rate.
