When you receive an arrhythmia diagnosis and need treatment, you and your doctor will discuss what treatment option is best for your specific condition. In general, your doctor will try to find the least invasive treatment that controls your arrhythmia. He or she will then base the treatment decision on the kind of irregular heartbeats you are experiencing, the symptoms you show and the seriousness of your arrhythmia.
