    Abnormal Heart Rhythm

    abnormal heart rhythm

    After suddenly falling into an abnormal heart rhythm at 44-years-of-age, Sarah was life-flighted to the hospital. Upon discharge, she was referred to a local cardiologist who prescribed her with medication and informed her to wear a heart monitor for a few days.

    When the results from the heart monitor came back normal, Sarah was weaned off of the medication with no further plan. Fearful of the possibility that she may experience a dangerous heart rhythm again, Sarah contacted 2nd.MD for peace-of-mind.

    The 2nd.MD specialist suggested she discuss a heart ablation procedure and other possible alternatives with her treating cardiologist. Sarah felt this would enable her to return to the things she loved. She was especially excited at the thought of returning to activities like hiking in areas without cell service.
