I was given shock treatment for atrial flutter.

My son, 15 years old was just diagnosed with this last week. He went in for a heart catherization which is where they found it. They did an ablation to the area and we will know for sure in 3 weeks when he takes another stress test to see if this is still there. No medication is needed. Just drink 64-80 ounces day and include salt in your diet. Retaining water helps the oxygen flow to the brain.
