Atrial Fibrillation Treatment:


Atrial Fibrillation denotes the cardiac problem of irregular beating or
quivering of the upper part of the heart. The atrial fibrillation treatment
actually varies according to the reasons of this problem. Actually the
treatment is done according to the cause & symptoms. The problem can be
treated using just some medicines. In serious cases, the surgery is needed to
solve the problem. Sometimes, the treatment of atrial fibrillation can be done
just by using some proper natural supplements and diet.
The irregularity in the heartbeat can be prevented using different medicines
like digoxin, beta blockers, diltiazem hydrochloride etc. Simultaneously
anticoagulant medicines like aspirin, warfarin etc should also be used to

prevent the unexpected blood clots in the cardiac artery because these can
result in massive strokes. When different rhematic heart diseases cause the
symptom of atrial fibrillation, commonly some surgeries are needed to repair
the damaged valves of the heart. Angioplasty or the bypass surgery in the
coronary artery is the common options of cardiac surgeries. If the atrial
fibrillation is resulted due to thyrotoxicosis, proper medications are enough to
end the problem. Another important option of atrial fibrillation treatment is
the electrical cardioversion. In this method, electric shock is applied to the
heart so that it can recover its normal beating.
