Heart Rhythm Disorders Follow-up
Follow-up is usually done with the primary care professional and often with a heart specialist (cardiologist). The patient is monitored for effectiveness of treatment, recurrence of symptoms or arrhythmia, side effects of medication, additional routine testing, and overall condition. For those requiring pacemakers, follow-up on a regular basis is mandatory. Patients are advised to make all follow-up appointments and should not attempt to change their medications without first consulting their doctor(s).
