An irregular heartbeat may be highly treatable when properly diagnosed. With an Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM), sometimes called a loop recorder, your doctor can learn what treatment will get you on your way to feeling better.
With AFib, the heart’s upper chambers beat irregularly. This can increase your risk of stroke. Symptoms may include having a hard time being active without feeling tired or winded.
Fainting, also known as syncope, is another heart-related condition. Symptoms include feeling dizzy, changes in vision, feeling sick (nausea) or having a hard time standing.
If your doctor suspects you may have a cardiac arrhythmia, such as AFib, they may recommend continuous heart monitoring to record your symptoms and episodes as they occur over an extended period of time.
Many people who have AFib may not experience these symptoms. It is important for your doctor to accurately diagnose your condition and understand how often and how long it occurs.
