Prognosis of Arrhythmias Discussion

In some people, arrhythmias are associated with heart disease. In these cases, heart disease, not the arrhythmia, poses the greatest risk to the patient.

In a very small number of people with serious symptoms, arrhythmias themselves are dangerous. These arrhythmias require medical treatment to keep the heartbeat regular. For example, a few people have a very slow heartbeat (bradycardia), causing them to feel lightheaded or faint. If left untreated, the heart may stop beating and these people could die.

About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Arrhythmias usually refers to the likely outcome of Arrhythmias. The prognosis of Arrhythmias may include the duration of Arrhythmias, chances of complications of Arrhythmias, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Arrhythmias, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Arrhythmias. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
