Atrial Flutter Prevention
Although atrial flutter cannot always be prevented, leading a healthy lifestyle may reduce the chance of experiencing coronary heart disease that can lead to atrial flutter.
The best way to prevent coronary heart disease is to practice "heart healthy living" as recommended by the American Heart Association.
If a person has already experienced an episode of atrial flutter, a health care provider should be seen regularly and his or her treatment recommendations should be strictly followed.
