Heart Rhythm Disorders Prognosis
The detection and management of heart rhythm disorders are undergoing constant improvement. The past years have seen an unprecedented explosion of information about these conditions. Detection and management of heart rhythm disorders has improved the quality and quantity of life. However, patients need to keep follow-up appointments and maintain their medications because not doing this can severely reduce a person's outcome. Untreated, ignored, or "undertreated" serious arrhythmias can result in syncope, strokes, heart failure, and sudden death.
