Re: copd with irregular heart rate
My dad also has copd, but is not on oxygen. He also had problems with his heart rate like you. It would be extremely high, then extremely low. He was given a pacemaker and has done great with it. He is now having other heart issues, but they seem controlled with medication. Check with your doctor about the need for a pacemaker. From what I understand it's a simple procedure that is done all the time. He is also in his 70's. Please keep me posted on how you are doing, good luck!
