Protect Your Heart

Bradycardia is a heart rhythm disorder. In many cases, it can stem from another heart issue or damage to the heart. While there are no specific steps to prevent bradycardia, it’s a good idea to keep your heart healthy by:

  • Eating a heart-healthy diet
  • Getting regular exercise
  • Knowing your cholesterol and blood pressure numbers and keep them under control
  • Avoiding smoking and secondhand smoke
  • Limiting alcohol intake
  • Keeping stress levels in check
  • Reporting any changes to your health care providers
