There are five key points in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. Patients should strictly follow the doctor’s advice

Beijing, November 13 (Xinhua) Li Guangping, director of Tianjin Institute of Cardiology and director of internal medicine of the second hospital of Tianjin Medical University, said at the Xinhua health lecture that there are five key points in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, and patients should strictly follow the doctor’s advice for treatment. The first is to control the ventricular rate of atrial fibrillation. The function of controlling the ventricular rate of atrial fibrillation is to let the patient’s heart rate drop very fast, so that the patient’s symptoms can be relieved. For example, the patient’s heart rate is 130 beats per minute, and the patient’s heart rate is relatively uncomfortable in this case. Therefore, the patient’s heart rate should be controlled by drug treatment or other means, so that the patient’s symptoms can be relieved. < / P > < p > the second is to see whether the patient is converted to atrial fibrillation, that is to say, the patient has atrial fibrillation now. Doctors need to stop the occurrence of atrial fibrillation and return to normal rhythm. They need to restore the normal sinus rhythm through drugs, cardioversion, minimally invasive surgery and other means. The third is to prevent thromboembolic complications of atrial fibrillation. If patients are prone to stroke thromboembolism, how to reduce this risk is an important step in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, and also an important link to improve the quality of life of patients. In addition, it is symptomatic treatment or treatment of primary diseases. If the patient has heart failure, hypertension, diabetes and other diseases, the treatment of these diseases is very important for the comprehensive management of atrial fibrillation, and the management of doctors also includes the treatment of diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and heart failure. The fourth is the treatment of symptoms. Patients may be complicated with many symptoms caused by atrial fibrillation and non atrial fibrillation, such as anxiety, tension, etc., including some symptoms caused by heart failure and hypertension, which need symptomatic treatment. < / P > < p > the fifth is that patients should follow the doctor’s advice. Different management measures should be considered according to the different stages of the patient’s illness, such as drug therapy for controlling the ventricular rate of atrial fibrillation and converting atrial fibrillation, and anticoagulant therapy to prevent thrombosis. If the indications of patients are suitable, catheter ablation can be performed through minimally invasive surgery to solve the problem of recovery rate and rhythm maintenance of atrial fibrillation.
