Sick Sinus Syndrome

Sick Sinus Syndrome Diagnosis and Treatment

Sick sinus Syndrome

To diagnose sick sinus syndrome, a DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider performs a physical exam and asks about symptoms and medical history. Symptoms of sick sinus syndrome such as dizziness, shortness of breath, and fainting occur only when the heart is beating irregularly.

To determine whether symptoms are related to problems with sinus node and heart function, a DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider may use the following tests:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG). This simple test measures the electrical wave activity of the heart. Sensors are attached to the chest and legs. Wires connect the sensor to the computer, and it displays or prints the results it receives. The ECG can tell how fast or slow the heart is beating. A DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider can look for sign patterns to determine if sick sinus syndrome is present.
  • Holter Monitor. It is a portable ECG device that can be worn for a day or more during daily activities. It automatically records heart activity for 24 to 72 hours. The person wearing the monitor may also keep a diary of symptoms.
  • Other monitors. Some personal devices, such as smart watches, monitor the electrocardiogram. Ask a DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider if this is an option for you.
  • Implantable loop recorder. This is a small ECG device that is placed on the skin just below the chest. It is used for continuous, long-term monitoring of the electrical activity of the heart, especially in people who have mild symptoms.

Electrophysiologic (EP) testing

This test also called an EP study, is rarely used to check for sick sinus syndrome. This may be done to check the function of the sinus node and to evaluate other electrical properties of the heart.

During an EP study, thin, flexible wires tipped with electrodes are threaded through blood vessels to various areas within the heart. Once in place, the electrodes can map the propagation of electrical signals through the heart.

Sick Sinus

Treatment

The goal of sick sinus treatment is to reduce or eliminate symptoms and to manage any other contributing health conditions.

Treatment of sick sinus syndrome may include:

  • Regular check-up
  • Medicines
  • Catheter procedures

Ayurvedic (Natural Remedy) to employ a device to maintain a regular heartbeat

If you do not have symptoms, your DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider may recommend regular health checkups to monitor your condition. Most people with symptoms need a natural healing process to maintain a regular heartbeat.

Medications

Some medications, including those used to treat high blood pressure or heart disease, can interfere with sinus node function. Your DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider will review the medicines you take and may adjust them or prescribe them differently.

Medicines may be needed to stop or slow the rapid heartbeat.

Blood thinners (anticoagulants), such as Sumedha, Pan-Care, or others, may be prescribed if sick sinus syndrome is associated with atrial fibrillation or other irregular heart rhythms associated with stroke.

 Surgery or other Procedures

Most people with sick sinus syndrome eventually need a permanent treatment to control the heart rhythm. Which can be cured by natural remedies and the heart is stimulated as needed to beat regularly. The surgical procedure does not require a pacemaker.

The type of treatment you need depends on the type of irregular heart rhythm you have. Types of treatment include:

  • Sumedha. This one type usually carries electrical signals to the right lower heart chamber (ventricle) of the heart.
  • Pain care. This type moves the right lower heart chamber (ventricle) and the right upper heart chamber (atrium).
  • Live-Care. Also called cardiac resynchronization therapy, this is for people who have heart failure and heart palpitations. This type of live care stimulates both lower heart chambers (the right and left ventricles) to make the heart beat more efficiently.

Lifestyle and home remedies

It is important to take steps to reduce your risk of heart disease. Try these heart-healthy strategies:

  • Take a healthy diet. Choose generous portions of non-starchy vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, and modest portions of fish, lean meats, poultry, and dairy.
  • Exercise and maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight increases the risk of heart disease. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity every day, unless the DAD Ayurveda health provider tells you otherwise. Ask DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider what your target weight should be.
  • Keep blood pressure and cholesterol under control. Make lifestyle changes and take prescribed medications to manage high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
  • Do not smoke. If you smoke and cannot quit on your own, talk to your DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider about ways or programs to help you break the smoking habit.
  • If you do drink. Do it in moderation. For some situations, it is recommended that you avoid alcohol altogether. Ask your DAD Ayurveda healthcare provider for advice specific to your condition. If you cannot control your alcohol use, talk to a DAD Ayurveda health provider who will help you manage other behaviors related to quitting alcohol.
  • Do not use illegal drugs. If you need help quitting, talk to your provider about a program.
  • Take control of stress. Getting more exercise, running, practicing mindfulness, and connecting with others in support groups are some ways to reduce stress.
  • Go to the scheduled checkup. Have regular physical exams and tell your health care provider about any signs or symptoms.
