Pacemaker helps manage symptoms but doesn’t cure the underlying condition
Atrioventricular block is a condition where the electrical signals between the heart’s atria and ventricles are delayed or blocked. It can range from first-degree to third-degree block. Treatment depends on the severity and may involve medications or pacemaker implantation.
Impaired conduction between the atria and ventricles
Fatigue, dizziness, fainting
Electrocardiogram (ECG), Holter monitor, imaging studies, assessment of symptoms
Variable, depends on the severity and type of blockage
Fainting, heart failure, complications related to slow heart rate
Aging, heart disease, medications
Heart condition where the electrical signals between the atria and ventricles are disrupted
Pacemaker placement, management of underlying causes
