AFib meds and too low a rate?
White 60 year old male.
Several years of increasing hypertension.
One episode of Atrial Fibrillation about 15 years ago.
Then six months ago atrial fibrillation returned.
Considerable weakness, coughing, panting.
Fourosemide (diuretic) 2x
Potassium supplement 2x
No anticoagulants rx'd.
No Holter monitoring.
No tests for H. Pylorii.
No tests for cause of HPT such as heavy metals testing despite my history of exposure.
Prior to initiating the meds my oxygen saturation would be 94 and heart rate would vary from 145 to 195.
After three days on meds:
oxygen is 92 and heart rate is 38.
Is the heart rate TOO LOW?
