Pediatric Arrhythmia

Heart rhythms are generally regular, and they slow during various activities. A heart rate measures a heart's beats per minute. Usually, the child's resting heart rate is around 70, and the infants' hearts beat about 140 times per minute. An arrhythmia is a heart condition where hearts beats irregularly. This condition causes the heart to flutter either too quickly or too unevenly. An arrhythmia can be present in the child either at birth or develop later at some stage.

Get your child or infant checked at a Pediatric cardiology hospital in Thane. The doctor will examine your child for any irregular heartbeat because sometimes, pediatric arrhythmia does not display any symptoms.

The heart hospital in Thane will provide the most efficient medical services to your child if the doctor notes that your child is experiencing an arrhythmia. The best doctor in Thane will ask you about the medical and family history. By giving these answers, you can help establish whether your child bears the risk for arrhythmia. Your doctor may also suggest diagnostic tests for arrhythmia.

How Are Arrhythmias Treated?

The Heart Hospital in Pune has various therapies for their patients with irregular heartbeats. All these therapies will depend on the age or condition of the child. Some of the therapies recommended for children with arrhythmia are:

Medication

The Heart Hospital in Pune will provide a pediatric cardiologist that will treat some disorders with drugs. If your child is suffering from Tachycardias- a condition where the heart beats too fast, this may be improved with medication. Though medicines may not cure the arrhythmia, they will be able to prevent or shorten an episode of irregular beats.

If the doctors in the Pediatric cardiology hospital in Thane prescribe a drug for your child, you should make certain that the child takes the dose every day or he/she may need it only when her heart beats abnormally. The doctor will also monitor your child for any side effects and may keep them for monitoring. The doctor may prescribe several other drugs before selecting the proper medication for your child.

Radiofrequency Ablation

If your child is suffering from severe arrhythmias, then they may require more than medication. The best doctor in Thane will suggest radiofrequency catheter ablation, which is a non-invasive procedure. The catheter tip is positioned right over the area that's causing the tachycardia. The small area of the heart is altered by heating the tip so the electrical current won't pass through the tissue. Several catheters will be used to replace the part of the heart that causes the irregularity.

Surgery

Some Pediatric cardiology hospital in Thane will also treat some children with open surgery. Surgery is performed to interrupt the abnormal connection in the heart is required to stop the tachycardia permanently.

Artificial Pacemaker

An artificial pacemaker is used to improve some types of irregularities. It helps the beating regularly. The Best Doctor in Thane will implant pacemakers inside a child's abdomen or next to the chest wall, connecting it to the heart with a thin wire. A pacemaker is a miniature device that is put inside the body and connected to the heart with a thin wire. It functions by transmitting small, painless amounts of electricity to the heart to make it beat. The current in the device does not hurt.

If your child has a pacemaker, then you will have to make regular follow up with your doctor. Pacemaker's battery will have to be periodically checked and replaced throughout the user's lifetime.

Children with pacemakers can clearly engage in normal activities. Talk to your pediatric cardiologist for healthy lifestyle changes and the type of activities allowed for your child.
